Future Hopes: Practice with the future progressive and future perfect

MP900398799_roadSome verb forms are simply not used as much as others. Nevertheless, verbs in the future progressive, future perfect, and future perfect progressive exist, and they do have a place in our communication with others.

The task for us teachers is to select real and natural contexts in which our students can practice using these forms. I know I’m not the first to match future verb forms to the topic of future hopes and goals. However, I hope my “Future Hopes” activity will save other teachers the time it takes to come up with a set of questions and a format that encourages repetitive yet natural use of these verb forms. Please see my Future Hopes_handout. Enjoy!
