Form . There are a number of ways of making reference to future time. These include:

present progressive I'm seeing Kamil tomorrow.

going to We're going to discuss the new secret deal.

present simple His plane getsto Heathrow at 12.45.

will It will probably arrive late owing to air traffic congestion.


Talking about plans or arrangements

We can talk about plans using the present progressive:

I'm meeting Mr Wong next week. He's arriving on Tuesday.

Talking about present intentions

We use going to rather than will for plans, decisions and firm intentions:

She is going to leave in a month's time. (Avoid She will leave ...)

When are you going to visit us next? (= When do you intend to ...?)

How much money are you going to offer? (= have you decided to offer?)


In general, we prefer a present form when the future event involves some sort of present plan, intention or arrangement We prefer will when we are not focusing on a present idea. Compare:

He's going to take early retirement, (present intention / arrangement)

He's taking early retirement. He'll have a lot more free time, (future situation)

Making predictions

To make a prediction we can use either will or going to:

I'm sure you will / are going to enjoy your visit to our Head Office.

We use going to when there is present external evidence for a future event and will when we state our own intuitions:

Look at those clouds - it's going to rain.

I expect he'llwant to stay in the best hotel. (I know what kind of person he is)



Making promises or offers

Will is used to make a commitment for the future:

'Could you lend me $50?I'll pay you back tomorrow.'

I don't know if I can finish the job by Friday butI'll do my best.

We use will (usually contracted to’ll ) when an offer is made at the moment of speaking:

'Are you going?I'll give you a lift to the station if you like.'

'I haven't got any means of transport.' 'Don't worry,I'll lend you my car.'


Official calendars and schedules

For a future event based on an official calendar or schedule we use the present simple. The event is unlikely to change between now and then.

The train leaves from Waterloo at 17.59.

Our next planning meetingis on Wednesday.
