Going to

There is no one 'future tense' in English. There are 4 future forms. The one which is used most often in spoken English is 'going to', not 'will'.

We use 'going to' when we want to talk about a plan for the future.

Notice that this plan does not have to be for the near future.

We use 'going to' when we want to make a prediction based on evidence we can see now.

We can replace 'going to go' by 'going'.
