    A: I (have) lunch at the pizzeria after I (finish) this. (Join) me?

    B: I'd love to, but I (put) my car to the garage. for some servicing at 1. (you go) tomorrow as well?

    A: Oh, yes, I go there almost every day.

    B: OK, so we (have) dinner together.

    My answers:

    A: am having; finish; Will you

    B: am putting; Are going

    A: -

    B: I do not know - for will - it's an immediate reaction, therefore will
    - for going to - there was previous arrangement that can be clearly seen from the conversation above, plus we are quite sure that we are going to have the dinner together, since having drawn this conclusion form the lines above

    Thank you for help

    Re: will/ going to/ present continuous

    Where did I find it? Great question. What I wrote is from a test I was given by my teacher.

    BTW: What is the correct verb?
