Future - One Minute Grammar

Todd / United Statesflaf

What will you do tonight?

Hi. Hello. Now I am at my college university football campus, and tonight there will be a football game. My college will play North Dakota, but I won't be here tonight, because tonight I will be flying to Japan. But there will be a lot of students at the game, and I hope my team will win. I hope the Aggies will win tonight, and I hope the fans will cheer them on and they will have a good time.

Sadly, I will be flying at that time, but I will find out the score of the game tomorrow. So, I'm really excited to find out about that and go Aggies.
