    What the difference between i am going to do shopping and i am going shopping

    Hello everyone,

    Please help me, can i say that "i am going to do shopping tomorrow" and "i am going shopping tomorrow" have the same meaning, and can i use them both as an example of "to be going to"?
    Thanks for your replies

    "I am going shopping" and "I am going to do some shopping" or "do my shopping" are equivalent, at least in AmE. "I am going to do shopping tomorrow", on the other hand, is somewhat unnatural.

    I have got it, thanks. And what about "to be going to"? Can I use "I am going shopping tomorrow" as an example?

    Yes, you can.

    Always capitalise 'I'.
