Will and Going To

Average: 4.7 (265 votes)

When talking about the future, we can use will..., going to...or the Present Continuous.

Use will to talk facts or things that we believe are true.
"I'm sure you will love learning English in Malta. It's a great place."

Going to is used with predictions.

When you are making a decision use will; use going to after the decision has been made. We sometimes also use the present continuous for planned events in the near future.

When we want to talk about future facts or things we believe to be true about the future, we use will.
