"Will" to express habitial actions AT PRESENT   
Dear native speakers of English! Could you, please, explain on what occasions you use "WILL" to express present states and matter of affairs, e.g. 

"She WILL tell me what to do all the time"

"My brother WILL get up early in the morning and make a lot of noise"

Is this use of "WILL" widely spread in your speech? Or is it rather peculiar to literary English?

Tnanx in advance! :)

It may seem will is used in a present simple context, but if you think about it, aka read more carefully, they all have the future in mind. The same goes for Tashalek s examples. "I ll go online" may happen a few seconds later, but that s still a future moment. Hope the following examples help. They seem to be in the present, but still refer to the future. I will send you the information when I get it. I will translate the email, so Mr Smith can read it. Will you help me move this heavy table? Will you make dinner? I will not do your homework for you. I won t do all the housework myself! A: I m really hungry. B: I ll make some sandwiches. A: I m so tired. I m about to fall asleep. B: I ll get you some coffee. A: The phone is ringing. B: I ll get it. Cheers, Peter

Hi, there!
Well, among other things, patting someone on the back or shoulder is a way of greeting them in my country, Greece. I wouldn t say it s the most common way but we do make that gesture!

Let s share enthusiastic students   
Dear Teachers,
I have some good students of various levels. They really want to practice their English, but because there is no opportunity to speak English in my country, they lose motivation to learn more! I am looking for teachers to share students, giving them some opportunity to really communicate in English!
That would be really useful for them all!
Looking forward to your enthusiastic Students!

I have one student who is interested. He is 25, industrial engineer, upper intermediate level of English, he likes snowboarding and surfing.

It would be great if you could find a suitable student from your country to chat with him on skype.

I hope that in the future I get more students to join and participate on this fantastic idea.

I look forward to hearing from you soon.
