There is and There are in the future
In Unit 28 we learnt all about using “there is” and “there are” in the singular and the plural to say that something exists in the present.
Now, we will see how to use “there will be” in both the singular and the plural to say that something will exist in the future.
“There will be a party on Friday”
“There will be 25 people at the meeting”
There will be in the negative
In the negative we use will + not which with contraction becomes “won’t” in all persons.
“There won’t be a party on Friday”
“There won’t be many people at the meeting”
There is another type of negative sentence. It is constructed with the verb in the affirmative and the word “no”.
“There will be no party on Friday”
“There will be no people at the meeting”
There will be in interrogative sentences
To form questions we put the auxiliary “will” at the beginning of the sentence. Also, notice that we use the word “any” with uncountable nouns and plural countable.
“Will there be any time for a meeting?”
“Will there be any people at the party?”
However, we do not use it with singular countable nouns.
To answer these questions, we use “there will” or “there won’t”.
“Will there be a party on Friday?” “There will“
“Will there be a meeting on Monday?” “There won’t“
Well done! You just revised the grammar in Unit 124 of our complete course and learned about “there is” and “there are” in the future.
