warningsignWill - present

To talk about habitual actions in the present, we can use will+ infinitive. It indicates a tendency or propensity to do something. When not contracted, it can be used to express persistence on the part of the subject -- something the speaker may disapprove of. In the past we use would.

E.g.

The fact-checkers will analyse the data -- Los verificadores de hechos analizan los datos (en general, tienden a hacerlo)

My mum will usually call me before she leaves -- Mi madre suele llamarme antes de salir

He'll eat a lot when he has a game the next day -- Tiende a comer mucho cuando tiene un partido al día siguiente

John will question everything you tell him -- John cuestiona todo lo que le dices (es persistente)

 

It can also be used to talk about willingness to do something. In negative, that may be refusal to do something.

 

E.g.

I will use emojis on my phone, but on one condition -- Estoy dispuesto a usar los emojis en mi teléfono, pero con una condición

The bank won't lend me money -- El banco no está dispuesto a prestarme dinero

She won't listen to me -- Ella se niega a escucharme

Compare with present simple

Builders (will) build houses (objective fact)

Builders will also repair broken pipes (they tend to, or have a propensity or willingness to. It's not their job)
