Future 1 progressive
The Future 1 Progressive is mainly used to describe a process that will take place simultaneously with another process in the future.
Future 1 progressive formation
will be + Infinitive + “-ing“
Just as with other progressive tenses, the future 1 progressive is formed using the “to be” form “be” and a verb + “-ing”. In addition, the verb will is still needed, which is in front of the be. You should also note that you are keeping the word order (subject, predicate, object).
will not be + Infinitive + „-ing“
Also, the negation is not really difficult, as the formation of a “normal” sentence. That means you just have to write a “not” behind the verb “will”.
However, in the future 1 progressive, there are no irregular verbs.
What is to be observed in future 1 progressive!
Spelling rules to “-ing” formation:
Particularly, making verbs with ing at the end is very simple. However, there are few points to consider:
1. For verbs ending in “-e”:
The “-e” goes away:
- give becomes giving
2. Verbs ending in “-er”, “-ur”, “-ir”:
The final consonant is doubled:
- occurs to occurring
3. Monosyllabic verbs ending on a stressed consonant:
As with the second rule, the last consonant is doubled here:
- get becomes getting
- swim becomes swimming
- fit becomes fitting
4. Verbs ending in “-ie”:
For this purpose, the “-ie” is replaced by a “-y” in the formation:
- lie becomes lying
Don’t be confused:
Both “will not“, as well as “I will“, are synonymous with “won’t” or “I’ll“.

Hey, formerly I thought that learning languages was an innate one. Either you can speak English perfectly or not and no matter how much you learn – “I do not write a good grade in English anyway.” But I quickly learned that you do not know everything in your mother tongue.
After a while, I gave myself one last chance to learn English. Only this time I limited myself to the essential points.
That means for me verbs: the form – examples – signal words & the usage
This method enabled me to learn English faster than ever before.
Since then I know that learning to talk is not innate. And through that realization, my vision has become to offer other students the opportunity to learn English, just like I did back then. Now I ask you to help me by sharing this article with your friends! Thanks a lot!
