    Which you choose depends on the context.

    Are you sure you're an English teacher?

    There was no context, and in my humble opinion both could be correct. And yes, I teach English.....at home

    It is impossible for there to be no context. And something is only "correct" if it says what you mean it to say.

    Re: Be going to or will

    You're right, but it's a sentence I saw in an exercise on 'will' or 'be going to'. Thanks

    Kekkora, to whom do you teach English? Your profile says you are a student.

    It says that now, but my assumption on reading the thread was that he has changed the profile since Rover's post.

    But post #3 states that he/she teaches English at home.

    To his/her children maybe, helping with homework. But I'm sure he can explain if he wants to.

    To Kekkorra: The reason why it's not good to put "English Teacher" in your profile and then use bad English on the forum is that there are students here who would assume that what you are writing is worthy of emulation.
