Future tenses for Bachillerato

What will the future bring?
As I see it, the present and the past belong to the level of reality, whereas the future is a much more diverse and loose time as it has never happened, that is, it does not belong to reality. This is the reason why I think Spanish speakers find it so hard to speak properly about the future in English, because it depends on what the speaker thinks and not a given time, with its corresponding time expression.

I'm going to try and simplify the different uses we see in 1st of Bachillerato with the corresponding tenses or modals used: 


Present simple
          Long-term predictions

           Spontaneous decisions

Will+infinitive (V)
Closed plans
Present continuous
To be+gerund (Ving)
           Short-term predictions

Be going to
Be going to+infinitive (V)
Action happening at a given time in the future
Future continuous
Will be+gerund (Ving)
Action finished at a given time in future
Future perfect
Will have+past participle (Ved)
