    Re: Future

    1. We can use 'will' to talk about spontaneous decisions.
    Spontaneous means moment of speaking.
    Ex: "The phone's ringing." "I'll answer it!"
    Ex: "Would you like something to drink?"
    "Yes, I'll have tea."
    2. We use "will" to make predictions about the future.
    Ex: "What will you do on holiday?"
    "I'll go swimming."
    3. We use "am/is/are going to" to talk about our intentions for the future.
    Ex: "What are your plans for the weekend?"
    "I'm going to study."
    4. We use " am/is/are going to" to talk about something is
    about to happen.
    Ex: "Look at those black clouds."
    " It's going to rain."
