    Re: Appointments

    ... "tomorrow" ... I think the first sentence is correct. It's an action executed on future. :)

    Smile Re: Appointments

    I think "I am going to see the dentist tomorrow at 3" is the correct sentence because it indicates you have booked an appointment with the dentist

    I`m seeing the dentist tomorrow - you`ve made an appointment
    I`m going to see the dentist.. - your plan is to see the dentist, but you haven`t made any appointment.

    Re: Appointments

    What is important here is to know what is not used ("I see the dentist tomorrow"). All the rest are acceptable.

    Re: Appointments

    I am going to see the dentist tomorrow at 3. it's US english and while first option: I will see the dentist tomorrow at 3. sounds more like british english. Is that so or I am wrong? I've choosed the first - US version.

    Wink Re: Appointments

    Grammatically correct is I'm seeing my dentist ... cause we're talking about FUTURE ARRANGEMENT- and in this case the only tense appropriate is Present Continuous.

    enjoy the comming week
