There is no Future Tense in English Grammar. Yes, there is no Future Tense in English Grammar. To understand this better, first, you should understand the difference between Time and Tense. Time and Tense are two different things. By Time, we mean the elapsed time, the passing time/day/month, etc., and the time to come.



Time in the whole world is directed by the past, present, and future. Its concept is independent of language or grammar. It is a non-grammatical thing that humans felt even when they did not know any language. In contrast, Tense is completely a grammatical category.


It is the study of different forms of verbs which gives a sense of the performance of the verb at different times. The form and interpretation of Tense are different in each language, but the concept of Time is the same everywhere.


For Example:-

1.I am going to buy a car next year. 

2.He leaves tomorrow. 


The verbs of these sentences are in Present Tense, but they make sense of – Future Time. The verb in “the prime minister will come tomorrow” is in the future tense, but it’s English.


The verb in translation “The Prime Minister comes tomorrow” is in the Present Indefinite Tense. Therefore, for editing the verb at the same time, where the future tense is used in Hindi, the present tense is used in English.


Therefore it is not necessary that only Future Tense should be used to show Future Time. So it is clear that Tense is the study of different forms of Verbs.


Now, consider English Verbs.

No Verb has Future Tense.



Go has different forms goes, going, went, and gone, none of them is of Future Tense.


According to the traditional grammar, shall / will form the Future Tense. So shall go / will go happened in Future tense. But shall/will is not itself in Future Tense, nor is there a modified form of any verb in Future Tense.


So Shall go / Will go is not in Future tense. That is why Modern Grammarians have suggested to limit the study of Tense form to Present Tense and Past Tense. Shall and will are called modal auxiliaries.


It is used to express various situations. Like every modal, they also have many uses in which showing Future Time is one. Future Tense is not created by doing will go / shall go. shall / will is also used to express the feeling of humble request.


Such as:-

Translation of “should I use your pen” as “shell I use your pen?” is | Apart from this, there are many uses of shall/will. Thus it is clear that there are only two tenses in English – Present Tense and Past Tense. The future is immediate in Hindi.
