In the next five years, I hope to grow in my spiritual life, helping to other people to find new roads to be improving their own lives. Also, I will understand the english language better than today I do.

In the next five years i hope to have win the lottery and be millionaire!!!

In five years time hope I’ll be still playing foodball what with I have a passionate love for the ball.

In five years, I'll finish my major, I'll work at law firms or maybe I'll work with United Nations

I liked the intervew, I thought interenting. Mainly the accent of this guys. Each country have their own way to speak and pronounce the words in English.


the third player says "i`m born" , is it grammatically correct ? i think he shouldve said "i was born"

Hi uncle_beni,

No, it is not grammatically correct. The correct form would be, as you say, 'I was born'.

The footballers interviewed here are not from the UK and their English is not perfect, as you can see!

Hi, does anybody know when we use future continuous or "going to"? I'm still confused what the different. Thank you.

Hello DeboraGultom,

I'd recommend you read our Future continuous & Future perfect and especially our talking about the future pages, which explain how to use the different tenses to talk about the future in different ways. If you have a specific question after reading through those pages, please don't hesitate to ask us.

All the best,

At task 2, why the right question is to express a belief the future, maybe this'd wrong answer, and I hope to explains me about it.
