Subject: Verbs that express future time

Request your help to clarify concepts about future time expressions. Are the following sentences grammatical ? Do the sentences mean different things? They are:

Set A
He will marry next April.
He is marrying next April.
He is going to marry next April.

Set B
The man will purchase a new house in Delhi.
The man is going to purchase a new house in Delhi.
The man shall be purchasing a new house in Delhi.

Set C
We are going to see the exhibition.
We will go to see the exhibition

On the face of it all sentences appear to be correct. Are they acceptable? So when does one really use other tenses to express future time if the modals can always be used ?

Look forward to your clarification.

Thanks ,

Hello Achala,

That's a lot of different examples! It's not really possible for us to write such long explanations as we receive many questions every day. However, I think you can find the answers to your questions on our Talking about the future page. Take a look at the explanations there and see if they clarify it for you. If, after you've done that, there are any examples which are still not clear then please ask in the comments on that page and we'll try to help.

Best wishes,
