از going to do زمانی برای آینده استفاده میکنیم که میخواهیم تصمیم بر انجام کار برنامه ریزی نشده ای را بیان کنیم.
- I hear Sarah has won some money. What is she going to do with it?
She’s going to buy a new car.
- What are you going to do tonight?
I’m going to have an early night. (I’m going to bed early but I haven’t arranged the time for it)
نکته: از عبارت was going to do هنگامی استفاده میکنیم که میخواهیم بگوییم قصد انجام کاری را داشتیم اما به علتی آنرا انجام ندادیم:
- I was just going to cross the road when sb shouted ‘Stop!’
- We were going to travel by train, but then we decided to go by car instead.
