Furious debate rages about whether English actually has a future tense in the technical sense. Nevertheless, at around 48-60 months of age, typically developing children start to use the auxiliary verb “will” combined with verbs in their bare infinitive form (e.g. “walk”) to talk about things that will happen in the future, e.g. “Tomorrow, the boy will walk”.
Most people learn how to use “will” without needing to be taught explicitly about it. However, people learning English as a second language and/or people with developmental language disorders sometimes don’t pick up this pattern automatically.
This 38-page no preparation pack is designed to provide people with structured practice using “will” combined with verbs in their infinitive form to talk about things that will happen in the future. With both picture cues and orthography, this pack can be used with people of all ages.
