To be +going to + verb infinitive (aff/neg/int)

The structure BE GOING TO is


normally used to indicate the future
in English. We use this structure:
1. When we have already decided
or we intend to do something in the
future:
I'm going to India next year.
2. When there are definite signs that
something is going to happen:
It's so cold! I think it is going to
snow.
3. When something is about to happen:
Get back! The bomb is going to explode.
