Future continuous Tense I – Progressive tense

Future continuous Tense

When we want to express an activity or event going on at a particular time or over a specific period in future will be + -ing (future continuous tense) is used.

Affirmative sentences:

Sub + will be/shall be + action + ing + obj.

You/they/he/she/it/name/plural noun + will be doing
