Future Tenses in Action - 2. Happy New Year!

It's a Wonderful Life
In the previous post we looked at the use of Future tenses in the English language. We will continue today with another practical assignment that is based on a trailer to a very well-known American Christmas movie made in 1946 It's a Wonderful Life. You can find it for free on youtube and enjoy a not-so-typical American dream film.

To practice your Future and Present Tenses I suggest you watch the trailer below and fill out the gaps. The answers are posted on the wiggio wall for all our OnlinEnglish Grammar participants. If you're not participating yet find out more and join us!

“Mary, I know what I 1)_______ do tomorrow, and the next day, and the next year, and a year after that. I 2)________ the dust of this crummy little town off my feet and I 3)_______ see the world!”

“George! Harry! You 4)_________ the house down! Stop it!”
“Oh, let them alone. I wish I was up there with them.”

“This is me. You remember me? George Bailey.”
“What is it that you want, Mary? What do you want? You want the moon? Just say a word and I 5)________ a lasso around it and pull it down.”
“I wish I had a million dollars.”

“I’m in trouble, Mr. Potter. I need help.”
“At exactly 10.45 PM earth time that man 6)_________ seriously of throwing away God’s greatest gift.”

“I don’t want any plastics, I don’t want any ground floors, and I don’t ever want to get married to anyone. You understand? I wanna do what I wanna do.”
