Would you like to revise future tenses by playing a game? I hope this one will help you. First, let's study the uses of WILL and GOING TO. We use WILL for general statements about the future. Concerning predictions, we use WILL when we don't have evidence that something will happen, when we aren't sure about it. When we make on-the-spot decisions, we also use WILL. Regarding GOING TO, we use it to talk about intentions and plans we had already considered and thought about. We also use GOING TO for predictions when we are sure about something, when we have evidence to prove that something is going to happen.
Study these examples with WILL:
- General statement about the future: The president of the nation will serve the country for four years.
- When we are not certain about the future: I hope you'll visit me one of these days.
- Spontaneous decisions: - My car has just ran out of petrol. - Don't worry, I'll take you home.
Now study these examples with GOING TO:
- When we make a prediction based on evidence: After just one week on stores, public and critis agree, they all love it. That album is going to be a success.
- When we talk about plans and decisions: I've already booked my tickets. I'm going to spend my holiday in Los Angeles.
After revision, here comes the videogame. The Earth is being attacked, you can save it if you answer questions correctly. At the bottom of the screen, you will see the beginning of a sentence and you have to match it to its ending by shooting the right capsule. You must move your mouse quickly to make it on time and to get to the next level. Each stage of the game is more difficult because the capsules will be moving all over the screen. Good luck and good grammar revision!
