When we want to talk about future facts or things we believe to be true about the future, we use 'will'. The President will serve for four years. The boss won't be very happy. I'm sure you'll like her. I'm certain he'll do a good job. If we are not so certain about the future, we use 'will' with expressions such as 'probably', 'possibly', 'I think', 'I hope'.

At the moment of making a decision, use 'will'. I'll call Jenny to let her know. Return to List of Grammar Lessons
