when student talks about the future in essay, will or would?

Postby shittyshoe » Thu Feb 21, 2013 3:11 am

Hello, I am an Englsih learner in Korea :)
Nice to meet you guys :)

Id like to ask the usage of "will" and "would".
For will, it is a bit simple for me, but "would" is not so simple as "will".

As I know peolple use "would" when they write something about imagination.
But some people say it is wrong.

here goes example sentences.
====================================================================
Let me tell you about the future. I traveled to the year 2100 and it was amazing.

In the future, there will/wouldbe people in space. We will/would live in the space and it sounds amazing!

There will/would be a space station. People will/would live in the space station.

Also they will/would be able to travel to other planets like Mercury, Venus, Mars, and Pluto.
===============================================================================

Please tell me which one is proper use :) Will or would?
Thank you :)
