Mensagem:  1) Para expressar uma previsão, pode-se usar ambas as formas. Ex: According to the weather report, it will rain tomorrow. / According to the weather report, it's going to rain tomorrow. Be careful! You'll hurt yourself! / Be careful! You're going to hurt yourself! 2) Para nos referirmos a uma ação futura preestabelecida, usamos a forma BE GOING TO. Ex: Pergunta: Why did you buy this paint? Resposta: I'm going to paint my bedroom tomorrow. Pergunta: Are you busy this evening? Resposta: Yes. I'm going to meet John at the library. We're going to study. 3) Para nos referirmos a uma ação futura no momento em que esta está sendo decidida, usamos preferencialmente WILL. Ex: The phone's ringing. I'll get it. If you don't understand, ask your teacher. He'll help you. Speaking to a waiter: - I'll have a beer, please.
