Hi I'm studying the future forms in English and I have some questions about it. If anyone can answer it I would be so grateful!
I would like to know what are the differences between these future forms:
-Be going to+ infinitive
Thanks in advance!
Be going to + infinitive. The speaker has plans or intentions of doing something in the future. Ex: I am going to drive. I am going to eat.
Present Continuous. The speaker is currently doing something that is on-going, continuing. Ex: I am driving. I am eating. Typically includes "ing" endings.
Will/Shall + infinitive. Similar meaning as #1, but the speaker is stating a fact. He/she is committed to doing it. "Shall" is rarely used in conversation. Ex: I will drive. I will eat.
