El going to y el presente continuo se usan los dos para hablar de acciones futuras que normalmente han sido ya
decididas y planeadas. En algunos casos el significado es el mismo y en otros hay una pequeña diferencia.

We are going to get new windows.

We are getting new windows.

El presente continuo se usa con verbos de movimiento. El going to pone mas énfasis en la intención.

I’m just popping out to the café.

Are you coming to the party?

I’m going to get a new job. (intención de buscar)

I’m getting a new job. (ya lo tiene, ya va a empezar)

No usamos el presente continuo para hablar de cosas que están fuera de nuestro control, sino el going to.

Look at the sky. It’s going to rain.

Prices are going to fall.

Con un significado completamente diferente:

It’s raining.

Prices are falling.

1 Se prefiere el uso del 'presente simple' cuando los hechos o acciones forman parte de

un programa o son inalterables.

The sun rises at 6.15 tomorrow.

My plane takes off at two o’clock.

2 When these facts are something fixed like a time-table, schedule, calendar.

The restaurant opens at 19:30 tonight.

Next Thursday at 14:00 there is an English exam.

Going to or Will

When we want to talk about future facts or things we believe to be true about the future, we use 'will'.

 The boss won't be very happy.


 I'm sure you'll like her.

If we are not so certain about the future, we use 'will' with expressions such as 'probably', 'possibly', 'I
think', 'I hope'.

 I hope you'll visit me in my home one day.


 She'll probably be a great success.

If you are making a future prediction based on evidence in the present situation, use 'going to'.

 Not a cloud in the sky. It's going to be another warm day.


 Look at the queue. We're not going to get in for hours.

At the moment of making a decision, use 'will'. Once you have made the decision, talk about it using 'going to'.

 I'll call Jenny to let her know. Sarah, I need Jenny's number. I'm going to call her about the meeting.
 I'll come and have a drink with you but I must let Harry know. Harry, I'm going to have a drink with Simon.
