|Assunto:||Use of "going to" for future|
Thanks for the reply, folks!
I definitely agree with you, Dale-US. Not because it "sounds" informal to me (as a non-native speaker, I think I´ll never be able to grasp certain nuances of the English language), but because I´ve always relied on grammars such as Cambridge, Oxford and Longman, in which we certainly find support to what you´ve just said. That´s why I really feel that the idea of using "going to" to express "immediate future" is misleading.
Does anyone else have an opinion on that subject? I just want to ensure that I´ve been teaching my students proper modern grammar.
