A lot of my students ask me about the difference between using will and be going to for the future. There seems to be a lot of confusion about how to talk about the future, so for today’s English lesson, I thought I would go over this point.

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or check the transcript for the details:

  • I’m excited about the party. It’s gonna be a lot of fun.
  • I’m excited about the party. It’ll be a lot of fun.
  • The weather forecast said it’s gonna snow this weekend.

  • Tomorrow, I’m going to have lunch with Kanteera.
  • Jack is going to run the meeting today.
  • What time are you going to leave the office?
  • What are you going to do tomorrow?
  • I don’t know. I think I’ll stay home and watch football.
  • What are you going to do tomorrow?
