You have studied several different ways of talking about events in the future. Now, study the grammar chart at the bottom of page 53 to get a summary of the future tenses. Here’s another brief explanation: will is used to express general truths; to make predictions; for promises; and for sudden decisions. Going to is used for predictions; plans; and to talk about the immediate future. The present progressive tense is used to talk about arrangements that have been made. Finally, the simple present tense is used to talk about future events on a set schedule. Do the activity that follows. In the folder GRAMMAR – Unit 16, study: future with be going to and future with will. Nível 4 - Parte 3
