    Will vs Be going to

    Hello, teacher.

    I have a question.

    What is the difference between "will" and "Be going to"

    Example : I will have a shower / I am going to have a shower

    I don't know What's different.

    I think, both of them are correct(grammatically) but have different nuances

    Hi!

    They mean the same thing.

    In American, we usually say "take a shower."

    In this instance, I find a nuance of difference. I would say "I will have a shower" if I'm talking about a plan to have one sometime later in the day or on another day. I would say "I'm going to have a shower" if I was heading for the bathroom to have a shower.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
