Ich verstehe nicht wenn man "going to", und wenn man "will" für die Zukunft verwendet.
Ich bitte um eine Erklärung.
Ne t'en fais pas. Keine Sorge,Urs.
Don't worry. With practice it comes self-evident. Here are some
notes, far from being exhaustive.
*** In some cases 'will' and 'be going to' are both correct, for
instance 1° to talk about something that has been planned ( I will
start learning German next week/ or/I am going to start learning
German next week.) 2° to talk about something that is likely to
happen. ( War in Palestine will drag on for years/or/War in Palestine
is going to drag on for years.)
*** To tell a decision that is made at once, use 'will'. ( I think I
will get up early tomorrow). If the decision has already been made
before, use 'be going to'. (As I told you, I am going to get up early
*** With a conditional clause leading to a promise, a request, an
offer, use 'will'. (If I win the first prize, I will let you know.)
With an 'if' clause depending on the main action, use 'be going to'
(I am going to pick fruits, if you are fond of = If you like fruits,
I am going to pick some.)
*** 'be going to' is sometimes more informal than 'will'.
