‘will’ or ‘going to’

 ‘will’ or ‘going to’

When we want to talk about future facts or things we believe to be true about the future, we use ‘will’.

If we are not so certain about the future, we use ‘will’ with expressions such as ‘probably‘, ‘possibly‘, ‘I think’, ‘I hope’.

If you are making a future prediction based on evidence in the present situation, use ‘going to’.

At the moment of making a decision, use ‘will‘. Once you have made the decision, talk about it using ‘going to’.
