GOING TOfor the future? What about the
PRESENT CONTINUOUS TENSE? In this English grammar class, I’ll explain when and how to use these two easy ways to talk about future events, activities, and plans. You will learn all about structure, usage, spelling, pronunciation, questions, short answers, contractions, regular verbs, stative verbs, common errors, and more. We’ll also do lots of practice together, so you feel really confident when speaking and writing. Remember: this video is part of the full engVid course on English verb tenses, covering beginner, intermediate, and advanced levels. The next class in the series compares “will” and “going to” for the future.
Rebecca..excellent lesson…thanks a lot.
Perfect lesson, thanks a million.
I’m going to watch this video once again and then I hope I’m taking a quiz with a good result. Thanx, Rebecca. Your lessons are my cup of tea! I like it!
I’m going to share this video with my friends.
Thanks a lot,it was so helpful ?
Thank you for the great lesson! :)
First of all, I should say that I really appreciate your classes. Thanks a lot. But, seeing this video, on the 27:44 minutes, you showed us this example: “7 – What are you doing about the problem”. In this case, wouldn’t we have to put a time marker? Like it, “What are you doing about the problem next week”. My best wishes, Rebecca.
thanks a lot for this video I am going to share it with ma friends ..good wishes
perfect lesson thank you so much for your efforts and your supports to help us to improve our English :)
Great lesson!. I have a question. The following statement, according to the quiz, is correct. “I’m going for a job interview tomorrow.” But, I understand that “going” is used with “to” not “for.” The preposition ” to” is usually used when we transfer, and ” for” used in benefits. Please, could you explain?
Hello, well first of all you should know that “going” comes from the verb “to go” so it is not exclusively used with “to”. Next thing you might do is to look at the sentence structure which in this question, the present continuous is used to form the future tense so they’re using going in the present continuous tense. That is why the sentence is correct
thank you MLChristine
Thanks Rebecca for the excellent lesson
I was a very good class and Rebecca is a very good teacher.
I have always been a stickler about grammar. I was always very good at it in school. In one of your videos, Adam explained when to use compound adjectives which I clearly understand; however, all these years I have thought that you never hyphenate compound adjectives when one ends in “ed.” Have I been wrong all these years?
That way, it was so well explained the use of “going to” “present continuous” and “future simple” they all about future. Thank you.

I think I’ve missed something.
In the answer number 6 I said it’s incorrect and you said it was a wrong answer. Would you please explain it, I don’t get it. Thanks.

Hello teacher , thank you for this lesson i want to give you a note about that example on prediction you wrote : it’s going to rain tomorrow . this is the futur tense my note is we can also wrote : it’s going rain tomorrow . whitout preposition (to) so we use the verb ( to go ) in the present continuous to talk about the futur with added the time marker
sorry i’ve made a mastake at the meaning )))))
thanks rebecca you are so smart you should be someone famous
Thank you Rebecca.
This is a helpful lesson to learn the future tense in English. I didn’t know “present continuous” can be used for future tense for sure but now I’m confident I can use it for near future.
Thanks for the lesson!
Rebecca is the best teacher EVER!!
good lesson..thanks alot rebecca..
Rebecca, Thanks a lot for a class. I understood very well this lesson. Thanks again.
Thank you so much mam for your excellent lesson!It’s very clear and more informative.i am going to learn a lot from this website.you are explained very well.i love your lessons as always.
Hello rebecca… I want ask you. Why is the answer of 6 correct? Going to/going for?
Ambar932. You have time marker ( tomorrow) so it’s correct to say, “I’m going for a job interview..” it’s present continuous. I hope you get the point.
Thanks dear teacher. Let me ask you,question 4 we have time marker. The time marker is used present continuous as you mentioned.( How can both answers are correct?)
Is time marker used both or one? (I mean, can i use Present continuous and going to).
I hope you’ll respond my question.
Great lesson! Thanks for teaching us.
Thank you very much, Rebecca! You’re lessons are great! <3
I have a question. In the lesson you used a sentence: What are you doing about the problem ? This is present continuous, so where is a time marker ? Or maybe shouldn’t be there , but why ? Thank you for help :)
thnks Rebecca i am very exiting for lessons
1 incorrect not bad
Great lesson. But I have a question, why we don’t need to add time maker in sentence “what are you doing about the problem” ?
In the lesson “Future Simple with WILL” You said that for prediction we use WILL.
Example: Expert says market will grow up.
Does it mean that for formal (official) prediction we are using WILL and for informal (my opinion) GOING TO?
Excelent lesson. This topic is very important for alls
Thank you Rebecca.
