#EngGrammar: Will and Would

Hi, fellas! How are you today?

I hope you are all well. Today, I’d like to share the use of will and would. #EngGrammar

‘Will’ is used to describe that something is going to happen in the future and ‘would’ is the past form of ‘will’. #EngGrammar

But, is that the only distinction, fellas? #EngGrammar

‘Will’ is often used for more definite action. E.g.: The test result will be out tomorrow. #EngGrammar

‘Would’ is used in more hypothetical situation. E.g.: If he departed earlier, he would be able to arrive on time. #EngGrammar

‘Would’ is also used to describe preferences. E.g.: I would rather have a pet dog than a cat. #EngGrammar

If you need to sound more polite, ‘would’ is also a better choice of word. E.g.: Would you mind waiting here for a moment? #EngGrammar

The last but not least, ‘would’ is used more in a routine that is possible to change. E.g.: Normally, we would work until 6 PM. But since it’s ‘malam takbiran’, we will finish at 5. #EngGrammar

All right, fellas, that’s all I can share for today’s #EngGrammar. I hope you found it useful.

Some of you might have been on your way in ‘mudik’ or homecoming trip. Stay safe, fellas, and be well.

Wish you a great time during Eid al-Fitr holiday. Don’t forget to check our timeline or http://www.englishtips4u.com  for daily dose of English.
