“Going to” atau “Will”

Ketika kita ingin berbicara tentang fakta di masa yang akan datang atau sesuatu yang kita percayai akan terjadi di masa yang akan datang, gunakan ‘will’.

  • The President will serve for four years.
  • The boss won’t be very happy.
  • I’m sure you’ll like her.
  • I’m certain he’ll do a good job.

Jika kita tidak yakin akan suatu keadaan di masa yang akan datang, kita gunakan ‘will’ dengan ekspresi ‘probably’, ‘possibly’, ‘I think’, ‘I hope’.

  • I hope you’ll visit me in my home one day.
  • She’ll probably be a great success.
  • I’ll possibly come but I may not get back in time.
  • I think we’ll get on well.

If you are making a future prediction based on evidence in the present situation, use ‘going to’.

  • Not a cloud in the sky. It’s going to be another warm day.
  • Look at the queue. We’re not going to get in for hours.
  • The traffic is terrible. We’re going to miss our flight.
  • Be careful! You’re going to spill your coffee.

Keputusan yang dibuat secara spontanitas, gunakan ‘will’. Sedangkan rencana yang memang sudah disusun sebelumnya, gunakan ‘going to’.

  • I’ll call Jenny to let her know. Sarah, I need Jenny’s number. I’m going to call her about the meeting.
  • I’ll come and have a drink with you but I must let Harry know. Harry, I’m going to have a drink with Simon.
