Future 2 Simple
The future 2 simple is mainly used to describe an action that will take place at a fixed time in the future.
Future 2 simple formation
The regular formation of the Future 2 in English
will have + Infinitive + „-ed“
The formation of the Future 2 in English is also easy. Because from a normal sentence, you just have to write a will have in front of your verb. You also have to attach an “-ed” to your verb. However, you must follow the correct English word order.
will not have + Infinitive + „-ed“
Likewise, the negation is very simple, because you only have to attach a “not” to your “will“.
However, there are many verbs that are needed for the formation of the normal sentence, which are irregular. While you are learning your vocabulary, you should also learn these “past participle” forms. In addition, you will usually find a list of important irregular verbs at the end of your book. In case you do not have: the 100 most important irregular verbs
What is to be considered in the Future 2 in English!
1. Verb is at the end of consonant + “-y”:
Here, the “-y” becomes an “-i”:
- tidy becomes tidied
2. If the verb ends with “-e”
Thus, the formation of the simple past form, eliminates the “-e”:
- love becomes loved
- like becomes liked
3. If the verb ends with “-er”, “-ur” or “-ir”:
Thus, the “-r” doubles in the formation of the simple past form:
- prefer becomes preferred
4. If the verb ends with a consonant where there is a simple, short, stressed vowel:
Thus, this consonant doubles.
- stop becomes stopped
(Vowel = a, e, i , o, u)
Don’t get it twisted:
Basically, both “will not” and “won’t” express the same thing, you should only consider what intension is behind the text when you write..

How the future 2 is used in English!

Hey, I used to think that language learning was innate. Either you can speak English or not and it doesn’t matter how much you learn -“Anyway I don’t record good grades in English.” And that’s where English is so important.
After a while, I gave myself one last chance to learn English. Only this time I limited myself to the essential points.
For me, that meant verbs: formation – examples – signal words & usage
This method enabled me to learn English faster than ever before.
Since then I know that learning languages 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!
Thank you very much!
