    I am going / am on the point of/ am about to

    Dear teachers.

    Would you be kind enough to express your opinion concerning the following three sentences?

    I am going to leave.

    I am on the point of taking my departure.

    I am about to leave.

    Thank you for your efforts.

    Regards,

    V.

    Re: I am going / am on the point of/ am about to

    I am going to leave.

    I am on the point of taking my departure. This is a bit unusual, it would be better as "I am on the point of departing."

    I am about to leave.
