My question is about the present continuous and the simple future:
She is leaving to London next month. (Not will leave)
She will leave to London next month.
The first sentence is the right one, but both of them express arrangement.
Well, would you please tell me the difference between them.
She is leaving for London next month.
She will leave for London next month.
Referring to a form with 'will + bare infinitive' as the 'simple future' suggests that it is a tense; it is not. It is simply one of several Ways of Expressing the Future in English .
I just want to know why the use of ''will'' in that context is incorrect since they both can express arrangement.She is leaving to London next month. (Not will leave)
She is leaving
She is going to leave
She is to leave
She has arranged to leave
She plans to leave
