4. Sentences With Still (From Present into the Future)
In these sentences, we will be adding still to show that something is happening now and that you believe that it will continue on into the future. As you can see, still goes before the main verb.

5. Adding Guessing Verbs
When we are showing that someone is guessing, we can add an extra verb before the future continuous. Usually, we use verbs like believe, think, guess, or bet.

She assumes that he will be busy reading the newspaper.
