    Simple future tense - will or going to

    There are two types of simple future sentences.

    A: formal B: informal. In the formal sentences we always use WILL to make a simple future sentence.

    Informal simple future sentences are divided into two types.

    A: planned decision B:unplanned decision.

    For example: when we want to make an appointment to visit a family physician. It is a planned decision sentence. Therefore, we use GOING TO in the sentence.

    On the other hand,we use WILL in an unplanned momentary decision sentence. In a simple future sentence with words like:until, if, till, when, unless, whenever and the words that make a sentence such as conditional and limitation, we don't use GOING TO.


    A: (informal): Jim: I'm going to get some food. Jane: Okay, I'll get some too.

    B: (formal): Dear students, we will begin the seminar at 11 a.m.



    Affirmative form: Subject + WILL + verb (infinitive). Contraction: I'll, you'll, we'll, they'll, he'll, she'll, it'll.

    Negative form: Subject + WILL + not + verb (infinitive).

    Interrogative form: WILL + subject + verb (infinitive).



    I am going to, You are going to,We are going to, They are going to, He is going to, She is going to, It is going to.

    Contraction: I'm going to, You're going to, We're going to, They're going to, He's going to,She's going to, It's going to.

    Affirmative form: Subject + auxiliary verb BE (am, are, is) + going to + verb (infinitive).

    Negative form: Subject + auxiliary verb BE (am, are, is) + not + going to + verb (infinitive).

    Interrogative form: Auxiliary verb BE (Am, Are, Is) + subject + going to + verb (infinitive)?


    Exercise: choose the right options.
