Have you got a plan?

Share this with your friends

Let’s look at why we use the Present Continuous in the future.

Here’s an example:

I can’t come to your party because I’m seeing my doctor tomorrow.

A doctor

In this situation, I’m seeing my doctor because I already called him and made an appointment for tomorrow.

Here’s another example:

Bobby is flying to my city next week.

Here, we know that Bobby already bought his plane ticket and he will be in my cityย (unless his plane is cancelled) so I should probably meet him. ๐Ÿ™‚

A man traveling

When you’ve got your plans organized and you know what you’ll be doing in the future, you use the Present Continuous.

If you haven’t made the appointment with your doctor (You don’t need an appointment if you’re going to a walk-in clinic) or your friend hasn’t bought his ticket yet, you can use going to or will:

I’m going to see my doctor tomorrow.

Bobby will fly to my city next week.

But let’s focus more on the practice by doing some exercises. ๐Ÿ™‚
