  • 18. Rules to Remember! 1 Sometimes will and be going to are interchangeable. In other words, it makes virtually no difference which one you use. At other times, however, the difference is significant. For example, when requesting a favor, dont use be going to. 2 Most of the above are suggestions and generalizations about how native speakers use will and be going to. These are not absolute rules. 3 When using will in speech, using a contraction is very common. For example, Ill give you a hand.* *Ill give you a hand=Ill help you Marie hates movies. She wont go with us.Page  18
