    be gointo

    Which is correct ? What is the difference?

    What are you doing this winter?
    What are you going to do this winter
    What will you do this winter?

    I know "will" indicates that something has not been decided and will decide now. whereas "be going to" means something has been planned/decided

    how about the present progressive? The present progressive tense can be used to express the future in this case. It also exwpresses something has been arranged/planned

    what is the difference between the present progressive and "be going to"?
    Is this okay?
    I'm going to go to school
    I'm going to school

    I'm going to go skiing
    I'm going skiing
    I'm going to bed
    I'm going to go to bed

    I'm going to <action>
    => It's what I plan to do.

    I'm going to <a place>
    => I'm on my way.

    Does that help?

    Could you give us more explanation, teacher?
    I'd be grateful.
