Grade 5 Grammar Lesson 10 The future tense will and going to

Normally, we use will to talk about a future action over which we have no control. The negative is won’t.

We use going to form to express intentions and plans to do something in the future.

We also use going to form to predict a future action when there are clear signs that it will happen.

You use will when you decide to do something for the first time, but you use going to for something that’s already decided, and is on your mind.
