Will or going to ?
When we want to talk about future facts or things we believe to be true about the future, we use ‘will’.
- I’m sure you’ll like her.
- I’m certain The new president will do a good job.
If we are not so certain about the future, we use ‘will’ with expressions such as ‘probably’, ‘possibly’, ‘I think’, ‘I hope’.
- I’ll possibly come but I may not get back in time.
- I think we’ll sign the contract tomorrow.
At the moment of making a decision, use ‘will’. Once you have made the decision, talk about it using ‘going to’.
- I’ll call Jenny to let her know. Sarah, I need Jenny’s number. I’m going to call her about the meeting.
