Mágico, Mitos e Mistérios de idiomas, incluindo o Inglês

Neste site, não é a nossa intenção aprofundar as glórias mais finas do uso da linguagem, nem do Português e nem do Inglês. No entanto, se não apontar os pontos de interesse em um passeio turístico, por que ir ao passeio? Há pontos chaves de desvio em todas as estradas. Se você não estiver ciente desses pontos, você nunca vai chegar onde quer ir.

It is not my intention to sing the unsung glories of any language in this site, neither of Portuguese nor of English.  However, if we don’t point out the best sights on a sightseeing tour, what’s the use of going on the tour? There are key turning points on every road. If you are not aware of these poits, you will never get where you want to go.

: Future with ‘Will’ and ‘to be going to’

This is what I got from sites on the internet. Do you agree?

–  What is difference between ‘will’ and ‘going to’?

A very confusing concept is when to use WILL and when to use TO BE GOING TO when we refer the future. Both refer to the future and there is a slight difference between the two though in most cases they can be used interchangeably with no difference in meaning.

 

– When we use be going to?

Will is often used in a similar way to be going to. Will is used when we are talking about something with absolute certainty. Be going to is used when we want to emphasise our decision or the evidence in the present

 

– The future tense with ‘BE GOING TO’

The expression be going to, followed by a verb in the infinitive, allows us to express an idea in the near future:

– I’m going to talk to him. Very soon I will talk to him.

Several employees are going to be promoted next month. Several employees will be promoted next month.

– Be going to can also express a conviction or a certainty:

– It’s going to rain. For sure, it will rain.

I’m not going to fail. I definitely will not fail.

THE FUTURE IS NEVER SURE!

ALL SENTENCES IN THE FUTURE CAN BE FORMED WITH ‘WILL’ AND ‘GOING TO’, NOW OR DISTANT FUTURE. 

EX: I WILL DRINK THIS WATER NOW and I AM GOING TO DRINK THIS WATER NOW – Both are correct.

EX: THE WORLD WILL END ONE DAY and THE WORLD IS GOING TO END ONE DAY – Both are correct.

THERE IS A DIFFERENCE IN THE USE AND COMMUNICATION. DO YOU KNOW THE DIFFERENCE? IF YOU KNOW, SEND ME AN E-MAIL AND YOU WILL RECEIVE A CONFIRMATION IF IT IS CORRECT OR A HINT ON WHAT IS CORRECT: [email protected]
