I use "going
to" when I have already decided to do something. I have a plan.
- My dad is ill in hospital. This
evening I am going to visit him.
- My mum loves the Beatles so I
am going to buy her a Beatles' record for her birthday.
- Martin's pullover is dirty. Mother
is going to wash it.
- My homework has some mistakes
in it. I am going to correct it.
- A: Where are you
going to spend your holidays next summer?
B: We are going to visit my grand parents in Germany.
