I liked this lesson! Fast, short but very usefull.

Hi Emma:
Quick question: Why do you & other teachers on Engvid never include IT as part of the 3rd person singular?. I’ve seen that in some of your lessons, as well as in some of Ronnie’s & James’s ones. Please, include IT, IT’s important: IT (The bomb) is about to explode.

Thanks & greets from Argentina (Hope it is from England someday)
Marcelo.

    As we know it is used for things that we do imply, especially for animals. Eg:the cat is a calm animal. It is sweet. Now the word “sweet” is a word of expressing that the cat is sweet. That is why I think the teachers don’t include it because it is easy and secondly there is no detailed explanation of it.

Hi Emma! Is it acceptable to use this structure in any formal conversation?

AlexanderR134

    Yes
    Eg:
    BOSS: Why didn’t you started your work?
    EMPLOYEE: Yes sir, I am about to start my work.

Thanks a LOTTTT…

Milan Kumar

Can I also say like this, “I was about to + verb”
to express the past action.

shans

    No
    About to is used only in the future, not in the past.

    palakshi nautiyal

      yes, you can use it like that. “I was about to call you when you arrived.” in this example you are narrating something that happened in the past.

      chunk

Hi Emma. I wanna know if BE ABOUT TO is different from BE GOING TO. Thanks.

pakpao

    Firstly, “be about to” is no word. It’s always about to.
    Eg:
    I am about to start my homework. This is what will happen in the future.
    And “Going to” is again no word.
    Eg:
    I am going to be a doctor. This is what you aim at the future.

    palakshi nautiyal

    Firstly, “be about to” is no word. It’s always about to.
    Eg:
    I am about to start my homework. This is what will happen in the future.
    And “Going to” is again no word.
    Eg:
    I am going to be a doctor. This is what you aim at the present

    palakshi nautiyal

    Hello, Pakpao.

    First and foremost do not listen to Palakshi, she(he) does not speak English well enough to give any advices.

    “About to” and “To be going to do smth.” are quite similar regarding to actions in near future; but “to be going to” contains elements of preparations or evidences, while “about to” contains elements of immediacy or urgency.

    Well if you are interesting what will become sooner “about to” or “to be going to”; the answer is “about to”.

    Have a nice day.

    Jagga-Jagga

    M.Hatulan

what is difference between ABOUT TO and GOING TO

when are use ABOUT TO and GOING TO ?

neeraj8575

    About to is when you will start your work in the future whereas going to is when you are going to start at present.
    Eg:
    I am about to start my presentation
    I am going to my relatives house.

    palakshi nautiyal
