“Be going to” vs. Present Continuous

#AhoraSí habla inglés

When you want to talk about future events or plans, you have some options. We are going to review two forms in this post; “Be going to” and Present Continuous.

Remember the difference
“Be going to” – It’s a very general future form for plans or things we can’t control or decide like the weather.

Present Continuous – It can express the same idea as “Be going to” but we normally use it with a date, time, or place that isn’t the one you are at the moment.

Check this quiz and let’s review some with some exercises – all of them have to talk about the future.
