When to use "be going to"?
βœ”οΈ future plans
βœ”οΈ things we expect to happen
Often confused form because it is everything what comes to our mind when we think of future.
Will
BUT...
"Will" is something very different. It has NOTHING to do with plans.
It WON'T happen again.
I promise!
When to use "will" then?
βœ”οΈ certain / possible future
βœ”οΈdecisions, offers, promises, warnings
βœ”οΈ on the spot decisions
1. Will you do this for me?
2. A lockdown will last till the end of May.
3. I'll call again later.

Last but not least...
Present Continuous we use for "right now" actions we also use for the future 😲
And it means...

What are you doing this weekend? - I'm going to an exhibition.
When to use "Pr Continuous", after all?
βœ”οΈ to talk about things that we have already arranged to do ❗
And that's it! BASTA!
Future form is hard to predict. But it is funny to learn!
