    Hi
    wondered if anyone can help?

    I'm going to do the hoovering up later.

    is it right to say there's no term for this, its just 'going to'? and doe it have any key features?

    "I'm going to do" is a way of saying that the action will take place in the future, usually quite soon.

    It is similar to 'I'm about to do', according to http://www.oxfordlearnersdictionarie...nglish/about_3

    Not a teacher.

    Welcome to Using English.
    I think this is a great resource on expressing the future: https://www.usingenglish.com/article...n-english.html

    Please note that your thread title should include something from your question. Titles like "help" or "grammar" are not useful.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
