【指点迷津】 一般将来时表示在将来的某个时候要 发生的动作或存在的状态。 ■ 一般将来时的构成 一般将来时的构成有两种形式： ★will / shall + 动词原形 will是助动词，通常在主语之后可以缩写 成’ll，其否定形式为will not，可以缩写成 won’t。一般疑问句的结构是把助动词will提 到句首。当主语是第一人称I或we时，常用 shall来替换will。如：
They will start doing the job this afternoon. 他们将在今天下午开始做这项工作。 We shall go out for a walk this morning. 今天早上我们要出去散步。 They will not come back next week. 他们下周将不会回来。 —Will you be ready tomorrow? 你明天能准备好吗？ —Yes, I will. / No, I won’t. 是的，我能。/ 不，不能。
注意：shall除用于表示将来，还可用 在疑问句中表示征求对方的意见。如： Shall I go to open the window for you? 要我去帮你开窗户吗？
【一试身手】 用所给单词的适当形式填空。 1. If I _________(finish) my report, I will be finish very happy. 【要点链接】 if作连词，意为“如果”，用来引导条件状 语 从句，if+一般现在时
If you ask him, he will help you. = He will help you if you ask him. 如果你请他帮忙，他会帮你的。 注意：在含有if条件状语从句的主从复合 句中，主句用一般将来时，if从句常用一 般现在时。如： If it rains tomorrow, we will not go to the zoo. 如果明天下雨，我们就不去动物园了。
