I’m going to tell you a secret

The Future Time Phrase “going to” is easy to use. “Going to” simply means you will do something in the future. You have made plans and will follow those plans. 

The Future Time Phrase “going to” can be used like this:

I’m going to (Verb)

This is the simplest form of the sentence and here is an example :

“I’m going to run.” 

By saying this, the speaker is telling the listener that they will “run” in the future, but almost any other Verb may be used. 

Although Future Time Phrases speak of events that will happen, a simple present tense verb is always used. Never use “I will running.” It simply isn’t correct. 

Another way to use The Future Time Phrase is by adding a Pronoun at the beginning of the sentence, telling the listener who will do something in the future. For example:

“Qi is going to walk.” 

Putting it together, you can say:

“I am going to run, but Qi is going to walk.”

By saying this, you are clearly telling the listener what will happen in the future.
