TENSE TUESDAY: FUTURE CONTINUOUS FOR PARALLEL ACTIONS

LISTEN TO THE DAILY VITAMIN HERE:

Hello readers and welcome to Tense Tuesday! I hope everyone had a wonderful Easter break.

Today we continue with our theme of parallel actions. Today we are looking at the Future Continuous with parallel actions

Remember that the Future Continuous has the following possible forms: 

will be + present participle
am / is / are + going to be + present participle


When we use the Future Continuous two or more times in the same sentence, it shows that these actions happened at the same time (i.e., they are parallel actions)

Example 1: This summer I am going to be studying in France and she is going to be working as a lifeguard. 

Example 2: Tonight we will be studying, drinking a little wine, and discussing the final exam requirements.

That's all for today. Thanks for reading! Have a great day.
