Simple present for future events

Most students understand the simple present form is used to discuss facts, habits, and routines.

-I brush my teeth every day.

-He listens to classical music in the morning.

-The Earth is round.

However, the simple present can be used to speak about future events that are definitely scheduled.

  • The flight leaves at 2 pm tomorrow.

  • Your class begins at 9 the next week.

Since we are talking about a fixed schedule, we can use the simple present to discuss future events.
