Will is used to talk about the future…I think everyone knows that. However, there are a few other ways that we use will. Today I’m going to show you how to use will for making promises and showing willingness.

Here are the example sentences:
Using will to talk about the future:
- Someday, I will go to Egypt and see the great pyramids.
- It will rain tomorrow, so please drive carefully.
Using will when we make a serious promise:
- My darling, I will love you forever.
- I will be by your side until the end of time.
- Don’t worry boss. I will work hard on this project until it is successfully finished.
- My darling, I will not ever stop loving you.
- I won’t leave your side.
- Don’t worry boss. I won’t stop working on this project until it is successfully finished.
Using will is when you decide to do something at moment of speaking:
- When the phone rings in the office, and you decide at that moment to answer the phone, you can say, “I’ll get it.”
- When you hear someone ring the doorbell, and you decide at that moment to open the door, you can say, “I’ll answer the door.”
- When the teacher asks the class, “Who wants to read their answer to the homework?” you can say, “I’ll go first.”
Yesterday’s listening challenge answer:
- Michael mentioned Little Italy, Little Brazil, Korea Town & Chinatown.
Today’s listening challenge:
- According to the conversation, how will Jack help his friend Jenny?
