2. GRAMMAR


FUTURE PLANS: (be) going to + infinitive

(be) going to + infinitive
(to talk about future plans)
I am going to visit my relatives in Madrid next month.
I am not going to visit my relatives in Madrid next month.
Are you going to visit your relatives in Madrid next month?
· tonight
· tomorrow
· next week, next weekend, next month, next summer, next year
· on Sunday
Answers:
Yes, I am. / No, I'm not.


With the verb go you can say: I'm going to go to Madrid next week. = I'm going to Madrid next week.

Watch out!!! In song lyrics going to is sometimes spelt gonna because of the way it is pronounced, e.g. I'm gonna /ˈɡɒnə/ love you for the rest of my life. = I'm going to /ˈɡəʊɪŋ tə/ love you for the rest of my life. (Jennifer Love Hewitt, I'm Gonna Love You).

There is another form to express the future: I will always love you, to express promises. But you will learn it next year in Básico 2.

Typical mistakes:
· don't forget to use the verb to be before going to, e.g. I going to visit my parents next weekend; I'm going to visit my parents next weekend.
