THANKS IT HAS BEEN A HELPING SESSION ME
Thanks a lot, it gives an extensive knowledge on this part
Understand the difference now.
I have a question. In order to know when to use present continuous + time marker and "going to", we need to know the differences between "plan" and "appointment / arrangement". I am having hard time to differentiate those two. Can anyone explain the differences between "plan" and "appointment / arrangement"?
“Going to” Future/Present Continuous/and Future Time Marker
Formulation: I am going to do (I’m)/you/he/she/it (it’s/it is) we/they
Present Continuous and Future Time Marker
Usage: When talking about a decision or a plan make before the time of speaking
Example: My Friend want to see the town /I am going to show her around
She has decided to study at college / She is going to study psychology
They want to discuss the matter /They are going to meet soon
Present Continuous and Future Time Marker – This is not just your personal plan or decision, but an appointment or arrangement you can put in your diary.
Example: I have an appointment with my Friend/I am showing her around this afternoon
She has now registered at college /She is studying Psychology next year
I am going to show her around town
She is going to study Psychology
He is going to see a Lawyer
I am snowing her around town this afternoon
She is going to study Psychology at college next year
He is going to see a Lawyer on Tuesday
