    there-structures

    Hi dear community,

    I've been studying some more complicated there-structures (at least for me). The following ones

    There is likely to be an exam tomorrow.
    It is likely (that) there will be an exam tomorrow.

    Is there any difference between both sentences?

    Thank everyone for their comments!

    Thank everyone for their comments! Unnecessary. Thank us after we've helped by clicking the Thank button.
    There is no appreciable difference in meaning. Note my corrections above.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
