How do you distinguish "is going to" and "will" I don't know how to use "is going to" and "will". For instance: l'm going to leave. l will go. How to distinguish them?

There is a lot of overlap where either one would work just as well. Where there is a difference: “Going to” is usually used to talk about plans, or predictions based on solid evidence — the process is already in motion as you speak. “Will” is usually used to talk about decisions in the moment, or predictions based on possibility or opinion.

They both mean the same thing!
