    Going to + Verb

    Hi

    I am doing a TEFL course and I am stuck.

    I need to come up with some ideas on how to teach the grammatical structure of

    going to + verb

    Although I understand, I am just struggling for ideas on how to teach this is a lesson.

    Can any one help

    Thanks

    John

    Are you referring to the semi-auxiliary be going to? going to + V is another kettle of fish.

    Re: Going to + Verb

    For the future simple,

    verb 'be' + going to + base verb or will + base verb

    How about setting up a fortune telling role play?

    Cut up some clue cards with things like: become homeless, start a new job, holiday, new baby, get arrested, get divorced, etc, etc.

    then the fortune teller will read the student's fortune using the cards as prompts.

    You are going to get pregnant.
    You are going to start a new job.
    You will receive some good news.
    Etc, etc

    good luck with your TEFL.

    Hi,
    There is no doubt. You are going to learn very good English.
    I am going to start a new business.
    You are going to loose your job.

    It is used just like simple future.


    Thank you for your useful post.
