Продължаваме с темата will+ infinitive vs to be going to+ infinitive, но този път в друго отношение- future happening and situations (predicting the future)
Sometimes there is not much difference between will and going to.
I think the weather will be nice this afternoon.
I think the weather is going to be nice this afternoon.
When we say something is going to happen, we think this is because of the situation now
Look at those black clouds. It’s going to rain. (It will rain)
(We can see that it is going to rain from the clouds that are in the sky now.)
I feel terrible. I think I ‘m going to be sick. ( I think I’ll be sick)
( I think I’ m going to be sick because I feel terrible now.)
Do not use will in this type of situations
In other situations, use will:
Tom will probably get here about 8 o’clock.
I think Sarah will like the present we bought for her.
These shoes are very well made. They’ll last a long time.
