    In the Grammar section of Business Spotlight 8/19, we look at different ways of talking about the future.


    There are different ways of referring to decisions about the future.

    Use “going to” for plans and intentions:
    – I’m going to buy a new laptop. This one is ten years old.
    Use “will” for spontaneous decisions:
    – I’m nearly ready. I’ll just go and get my coat.
    Use the present continuous for future arrangements:
    – I’d better go now. I’m meeting Tom in the lobby at three.
