Izbjegnite česte greške / Avoid common mistakes:

Ne koristite will za buduće planove i dogovore. Koristite going to ili present continuous.

Don’t use will for future plans or arrangements. Use going to and present continuous.


Koristite present continuous za događaje koji su već dogovoreni (I am meeting John for dinner tomorrow at 6pm). Za planove ili buduće namjere koristite going to (I am going to visit John this week. We haven’t decided on the day yet).

Use present continuous for the events that have been arranged (I am meeting John for dinner tomorrow at 6pm). For plans or intentions use going to (I am going to visit John this week. We haven’t decided on the day yet).


Future perfect (The report will have been ready by Friday.) se rijetko koristi. U većini situacija koristi se future simple (will). Koristite future perfect ako želite naglasiti ispunjenje radnje.

Future perfect (The report will have been ready by Friday.) is rarely used. In most of the situations you can use future simple (will). The future perfect form is used to stress completion.
