Going To

Category: Education

Going To present continuous

To discuss about movement in regard to a place or a person in the present, we use the present continuous form of the verb go + preposition to + noun phrase:

Are you going to Maggie’s party tonight?

I’m going to the shops. Do you want anything?


Going To on the future:

We can use a present form of be + going to + the base form of a main verb to talk about the future. We use it for plans and intentions, predictions and commands:

I’m going to buy a new car next week. (plan or intention)

You’re not going to do all this in an hour. There’s just too much to do. (prediction: the speaker can see how much there is to do)

I’m telling you, you’re going to do it. You don’t have a choice. (command)
