    Re: will, going to, 'll

    ex: I am going to be a doctor. <I have put some thought into it>
    ex: I will be a doctor. <I know it; it's a fact>
    ex: I'll be a doctor. <I'll is a contraction of I will>

    Contraction
    I will => I'll (the apostrophe (') replaces the letters <wi>)

    will - Will you come tomorrow night? (unplanned situation)
    going to - It's going to rain. (predicted situation)
    'll - I'll see. (informal way of expressing 'will')

    Welcome, hochengcheng.

    I, too, have a question. How do these differ?

    [1] Will you come tonight?
    [2] Are you going to come tonight?

    All the best.

    Re: will, going to, 'll

    a teacher of mine told me that 'll was used for instant decisions and that using willl in those cases was wrong.
    Eg: Jane:you are an estupid
    John :stop saying that or i'll kill you.( using will there is correct?)
