    Exclamation I visit vs I'm visiting

    Hello there.

    These sentences are both correct?
    Any difference?

    (a) I don't have any plans for this Sunday, but next Sunday I am visiting my aunt.

    (b) I don't have any plans for this Sunday, but next Sunday I visit my aunt.

    Please help me!

    Hi gchman

    (a) I don't have any plans for this Sunday, but next Sunday I am (planning on) visiting my aunt.

    (b) I don't have any plans for this Sunday, but next Sunday I will (definitely) visit my aunt.

    Re: I visit vs I'm visiting

    No, Soup - that changes the sentences. The difference is between:
    I don't have any plans for this Sunday, but next Sunday I am visiting my aunt.
    (Not, 'am planning on visiting'..., which shifts the time frame.)
    and
    (b) I don't have any plans for this Sunday, but next Sunday I visit my aunt.

    (I will visit is a difference tense form).
