Will be
We can use 'will be doing' to talk about something that will be in progress at a particular moment in the future.
Present simple
Use the Simple Present to express the idea that an action is repeated or usual. The action can be a habit, a hobby, a daily event, a scheduled event or something that often happens. It can also be something a person often forgets or usually does not do.
Present continuous
Use the Present Continuous with Verbs in simple form to express the idea that something is happening now, at this very moment. It can also be used to show that something is not happening now.
Present Perfect
We use the Present Perfect to say that an action happened at an unspecified time before now. The exact time is not important. You CANNOT use the Present Perfect with specific time expressions such as: yesterday, one year ago, last week, etc. We canuse the Present Perfect with unspecific expressions such as: ever, never, once, many times, several times, before, so far, already, yet, etc.
