Common difficulties – Future Tense

Angus' IELTS 7.00

A simple way of expressing your intentions to do something in the future is to say that you are “going to do” something.

For example: “I am going to walk to class tomorrow.”

“They are going to go fishing next summer.”

“We are going camping on Friday night.”

Another way of saying the same thing is to say that you “will do” something.

For example: “I will walk to class tomorrow.”

“They will go fishing next summer.”

“We will go camping on Friday night.”

So if you want to tell your audience that in the future you intend to change your activity, you can either use “going to” or “will“.

You can rehearse some free online tests for Going to, here; or Will, here.
