Three views of the Future

 

This video discusses different ways that English-speakers use to talk about events that will happen in the future. The focus is on the difference between using ‘to be going to’ and using the Present Continuous (or Present Progressive) tense to talk about a future event.

The link that I mention in the video is https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nMYqb8TKesA

The link is to the first video I ever made for this blog. I think I’ve gotten a bit better at making them.
