When should you teach the Future Continuous to ESL students? It’s important to teach this topic at the right time. This lesson is designed for pre-intermediate students (B1 Level on the CEFR framework) to learn the Future Continuous. Before you start this lesson, check the following: Can your students use the present continuous for actions in progress at the time of speaking? Can your students use the simple future with will? Have your students had exposure to the past continuous, for actions in progress at a point in the past? If your students have done all of the above three points, then they are ready to learn about the Future Continuous.
