This week students learned the difference between 'going to' and 'will'
A specific sentence on their worksheet inspired a conversation about what to say when you are running late for work. Students weren't sure whether the correct sentence is "I'm going to get late" and "I'm going to be late." Jose L. asked "Can I say 'I'm coming late to work?'" And Leo said "maybe going to is better than coming because it is a sure thing. If the bus is late, you know for sure you are 'going to' be late to work now." Students also asked if they could just say "I am late," but then they answered their own question by realizing that "I am" means now.
