I'm leaving tomorrow. vs. I'm going to leave tomorrow #1 (permalink) Wed Sep 06, 2006 4:33 am   I'm leaving tomorrow. vs. I'm going to leave tomorrow
 

Hello teachers,

Please see the following:

I'm leaving tomorrow.
I'm going to leave tomorrow.


Is there any difference between this two tenses?

Thanks in advance

Hi jupiter

Both of them are future forms .

"I'm leaving tomorrow"
this form is a future arrangement( or Present continues ) : is used to express a future arrangement between people . It usually refers to the near future .

" I'm going to leave tomorrow. "
Going to is used to express a future plan , decision , or intention made before the moment of speaking .

Hi,

That's a clear explanation from Hercules.
What about the differences among:

I will leave tomorrow.
I am going to leave tomorrow.
I am leaving tomorrow.
