    I am picking him up tomorrow.
    I will pick him up tomorrow.
    I am going to pick him up tomorrow.
    What is the difference among the sentences above?

    Besides, when do we use "is/am/are going to+verb" and "will +verb?"

    Thanks!!! :o

    So do we say "you will be having an exam on Thursday" instead of "you will have an exam on Thursday?"

    I still can't distinguish the difference between
