  • Welcome to ELL.SE. In order for us to answer your question, you must edit it to explain why you think one or the other is or is not correct, citing what you know about the use of the continuous aspect. Otherwise, this becomes a proofreading exercise that is not helpful to future visitors who have the same question. I strongly encourage you to take the site tour and review the help center for additional guidance. – choster Apr 23 at 12:34

Both are correct future tense.

First one is simple future tense and the latter one is Future continuous/Progressive tense.


Both are correct.

The first version says the visit will happen. This is the common way it will be said.

The second version says there will be a point in time when she is actively visiting. That is a rather subtle distinction, and it is generally a useless distinction. It will be rather uncommon for anyone to say it this way.
