    Question Tenses and usage

    “I am having a holiday next July” and “I am going to have a holiday next July”

    Can anyone tell me the tenses of these sentences and the difference in usage and meaning.

    To give a spot of background info: I am looking to learn proper English grammar with a view to taking a course at some point in the next few months. I am doing a lot of research on my own and sometimes come across problems that I can't find the answer to, or work out by myself. I very much appreciate any help that can be provided by members of this forum, and hope that my questions could benefit others also. Perhaps in the future I may even be able to answer a few questions myself.
