GRAMMAR POINT – EXPRESSING ACTIONS IN THE FUTURE

https://www.perfect-english-grammar.com/will-or-be-going-to.html

FINALLY, let’s speak about Present Continuous. Even though Present Continuous is a present tense, it can allude to the future.

I am seeing Martha in town tomorrow.

We use the present continuous tense for definite future arrangements. Often, it doesn’t really matter if we choose ‘be going to’ or the present continuous. In the following example, there is really very little difference in meaning:

  • I‘m going to the cinema tonight.
  • I‘m going to go to the cinema tonight.

We use the present simple tense in two cases. First, we use it for a timetabled event in the future, like public transport or the start of a class:

  • My train leaves at six tonight.
  • His class starts at 9am tomorrow.

Second, we use it after certain words, when the sentence has a future meaning. These words are: before / after / as soon as / until / when:

  • I’ll call you when I get home.
  • She’s going to study after she finishes dinner.
  • Please drink some water as soon as you complete the race.
