Wh Questions

What’s the importance of asking a question? Why do we need to ask questions to people? When is the best time to ask a question? Where do we usually ask questions? Who do we often ask questions to?

All of these are wonderful questions when we look at the context of questions. Here is a breakdown/review of the major indicators we use for questions:

1. Who:

Use “who” when you want to ask about a person or people.

Example: “Who is your teacher?”

2. What:

Use “what” when you want to ask about things, objects, actions, or activities.

Example: “What is your favorite color?”

3. Where:

Use “where” when you want to ask about a place or location.

Example: “Where do you live?”

4. When:

Use “when” when you want to ask about a specific time or moment.

Example: “When is your birthday?”

5. Why:

Use “why” when you want to ask for the reason or cause behind something.

Example: “Why are you late?”

B1 Future: Be Going to/Present Continuous

Though the Present Continuous is a great way to indicate present events in present time, we can also use this verb tense when referring to future events as well!

The format is as follows:

1. Present Continuous for Future:
Formation: Subject + am/is/are + verb-ing:


  • We use the present continuous for future events when we have a definite plan or arrangement.
  • It’s often used for things that are happening relatively soon or in the near future.
  • The time frame is somewhat fixed and planned.


  • I am meeting my friend at 3 PM tomorrow.
  • She is flying to Paris next week.
  • They are having a party on Saturday.

Now you try some examples!

  • It’s often used for things that you’ve already decided to do or that seem likely to happen based on current circumstances.
  • The time frame is more flexible and can be in the near or distant future.

First Conditional!

We use the first conditional when we want to talk about future events, conditions, or situations we think are real or possible. It is an important tense to use because there is always a possibility that a condition will or will not happen! Think of the first conditional like a statement with two parts – a hypothesis (the if statement), and a conclusion (the then statement). Some examples of the first conditional include:

  • If you don’t bring an umbrella outside, you will get wet!
  • If they are late again, I will be quite annoyed.
  •  If Dad doesn’t have dessert tonight, he definitely will eat something sweet tomorrow.
  •  What will you do if I miss the plane?
  • Who will call her if her phone breaks?
  • If he finishes school early, we will go to a restaurant for lunch.


Hint: Notice how the use of the first conditional typically
consists of “if” + present simple verb in the condition
clause and “will” + base form of the verb in the result
