In the Netherlands, you don’t hear will frequently enough among non-native speakers of English. Maybe this is because we actually contract it to make I’ll and you’ll (and those are terrible to pronounce!) or maybe because in Dutch you frequently use the present tense to talk about the future.
Whatever the reason, adding will back into your vocabulary is an easy way to sound more fluent quickly.
|I see you tomorrow||I’ll see you tomorrow|
|You join us later?||You’ll join us later?|
|He goes to Amsterdam this Friday.||He’ll go to Amsterdam this Friday.|
|They are late tonight.||They’ll be late tonight.|
