Usage guidelines

Como vimos na aula, o futuro pode exprimir-se de diferentes formas, consoante a nossa ideia ou intenção comunicativa. Na aula treinámos 2 dessas 3 formas, mas aqui revemos as 3.

will

will / will not (ou won’t) + 1 verbo no infinitivo (do, make, be, play, have, etc.)

  • previsão que pode ou não concretizar-se; futurismo
  • prometer algo a alguém
  • oferecer ajuda a alguém
  • tomada de decisão no preciso momento em que se fala
  • pedir algo a alguém

I think she will be a very rich person.

I will help you. 

Will you bring me some water, please?

going to

(verbo to be no presente) am, is, are + going to + 1 verbo no infinitivo; na negativa usa-se not após o verbo to be, com ou sem contracção

  • intenção, algo que já se pensa fazer
  • previsão ou dedução baseada no que se sabe ou no que está a ver ou observar

I‘m going to study harder in the future.

She isn’t going to pass her exam, because she didn’t study.

present continuous (poderão revê-lo na página 38 do livro)

(verbo to be no presente) am, is, are + 1 verbo prinicipal a terminar em ing; na negativa usa-se not após o verbo to be, com ou sem contracção

  • coisas que já estão marcadas ou combinadas

I‘m having dinner with my friends tomorrow.

He isn’t coming back tonight.
