    Am

    Neither you nor I am going to Japan next month.

    Is the above sentence grammatical by using "am"?

    Thanks.

    We generally avoid having to make tricky choices like this by saying

    'Neither you nor I will be going to Japan next month'.

    Re: Am

    Neither of us is going to Japan next month.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Actually, I found this sentence from a grammar worksheet that "am" is the answer. That's why I want to clarify.
