This is Everyday Grammar. I'm Lucija.
And I'm Kaveh. And today we'll be talking about the simple future tense.
Hi Lucija. I just wanna let you know, we will go to dinner at eight.
Kaveh, you mean, "We are going to go to dinner at eight."
Kaveh，你想说“We are going to go to dinner at eight.（我们今晚八点去吃晚餐。）”
Right. That's what I said.
I think you are getting your future tenses mixed up. Let me explain.
Will expresses a desire or agreement to do something… or a sudden decision.
I will help you with your homework.
I will help you with your homework.（我会辅导你家庭作业。）
I will get the phone!
I will get the phone.（我来接电话。）
So what about be going to?
那be going to怎么用？
Be going to
Be going to
You use be going to when you already have a plan to do something.
在你已经想好了计划的情况下，要用be going to。例如：
I am going to study grammar more often.
I am going to study grammar nore often.（我会经常学习语法的。）
Phew. I was afraid I was gonna mess that one up.
Now you're speaking like a real American.
Remember, when you want to make a prediction about the future, you can use will or be going to. The meaning is the same.
记住，如果你想预测未来，你可以用will或be going to，这两个意思一样。例如：
I will be famous someday…
I will be famous someday.（某天我一定会成名。）
I am going to be famous someday.
I am going to be famous someday.（某天我会成名。
Thanks so much for the grammar lesson. So are we going to have dinner tonight or what?
Sure. I'll pick you up at 7:30.
And that's Everyday Grammar.
