  • 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.
  • Some lessons are more tricky than others... The 'd contractions are confusing. I have a poor knowledge of this issue - I mostly listen to have it sounds... Are there any simple rules for it? Sometimes, to me, it sounds like two different versions may apply.

    Identify the full (uncontracted) form of the contractions used in the following sentences:

    I'd like to eat some cheese. I'd = I would

    Your shoes are on fire! You'd better take them off. You'd = You had

    He'd stolen sixteen tons of weapons-grade plutonium. He'd = He had

    I'd best be careful with all these knives. I'd = I should

    Would apreciate more exercises in this topic!
  • "I am going to" is use to express something which occur in the immediate future
    "I will go" express the future
  • I am happy because I understand more and more english language
