We mainly use the Future Continuous
to indicate that we will be in the middle of doing something in a specified time in the future. There are also two other uses, listed below:
1. Future actions in progress
2. Guesses about the present or the future
3. Polite questions about somebody's intention
Good to know
If you want to learn about somebody's intentions, you should always use the Future Continuous rather than the Present Simple. Using the Future Simple implies that you want to influence somebody's decision. Questions become much more objective if formed in the Future Continuous.
Will you come home? (= I want you to come home)
Will you be coming home? (= I just want to know)
Use 1: Future actions in progress
The first use of the Future Continuous is to express future action in progress.
·In an hour, I will be sitting
in front of my TV.
·In the evening, I will be baking
a birthday cake.
Use 2: Guesses
Use this tense also to make guesses about something in the present or future.
·He won't be coming
any time soon. He is still at the office.
·Beatrice will be getting
married very soon.
Use 3: Questions
And the last use of the tense is to make polite questions about something or somebody.
you be coming
home before or after 10 PM?
you be going
to the supermarket? I have something to buy.
