  • I am going to it's a different future form (going to future) as I will go (will future)

    We use be going to:

    to talk about plans or intentions:

    I'm going to drive to work today.
    They are going to move to Manchester.

    to make predictions based on evidence we can see:

    Be careful! You are going to fall. (= I can see that you might fall.)
    Look at those black clouds. I think it's going to rain. (= I can see that it will rain.)

    5. We use will be with an -ing form for something happening before and after a specific time in the future:

    I'll be working at eight o'clock. Can you come later?
    They'll be waiting for you when you arrive.

    6. We can use will be with an -ing form instead of the present continuous or be going to when we are talking about plans, arrangements and intentions:

    They'll be coming to see us next week.
    I'll be driving to work tomorrow.
