Be going to (plans and predictions)
- We use be going to + verb infinitive to talk about future plans.
- We often use future time expressions with going to: tomorrow, next week, next year, etc.
- We can be going to + verb infinitive to make predictions (= to say what you think or can see is going to happen in the future)
Verbs + to + infinitive: want to, need to, etc.
Many verbs are followed by a verb in the infinitive with to.
These include: -> want, need, learn, promise, decide, plan, and hope.
- I would like to = I want to (now or in the future).
Contractions: ´d = would; wouldn´t = would not
- Use the infinitive with to after -> would like e.g I would like to learn
- Remember you can also use Would you like …? to offer: Would you like a drink?
- Would like is the same for all persons.
Would like to and like
I´d like to dance = I want to dance
I like dancing = I enjoy it; I like it in general.
Will (decisión, ahora)
eg. I´ll have chicken / I´ll love you ever
