    I will be going

    Can somebody explain to me the of this sentence?

    I will go. (Some time in the future) - correct?
    I am going. (At a specific time in the future!) - correct?
    I will be going.

    But I am just a little confused about the last one. I've heard it in movie but it sounds so unnatural to me. Thanks a lot for your explanation.

    Have a nice day,
    Dany

    I will go to France soon. (It's simple future) you are right.
    I am going to France soon. ( It's fixed future) you have already arranged to go there.
    I will be going to France at this time tomorrow. (It's future progressive) you'll be doing it at a specific time in future.

    Hi,
    Some addition:
    The Future Progressive is also used to refer to future events which are fixed or decided, or which are expected to happen in the normal course of events:
    I will be visiting them Friday next.
    Besides, it's used to make polite enquiries about people's plans:
    Will you be wanting my help?

    Regards
