    Re: "will come" and "will be coming"

    1 I'd say this if I'd been ill and was getting better, for example.
    2 I'd use this when it's a natural part of my schedule- I'll be coming on Monday, so we can meet later on.
    3 Planned arrangement- a parent might say this when they have an appointment with the teacher.
