English Grammar – Predictions
When we talk about the future and what we think will happen, we can use two pieces of language:
ii. Going to
What is the difference between these two pieces of grammar?
i. We use ’will’ when something is not very certain. Our prediction is based on a feeling or emotion.
ii. We use ‘going to’ when the action is more certain. Our prediction is based on facts.
- I think I will go to Bali on vacation. (I am not sure)
- ‘ I am going to go to Bali on vacation (I plan to go there; I am more certain)
