Watch This If You Have Total English Grammar Confusion!

Recently I got contacted by one of my blog readers and she told me that the more she thinks about the various English grammar tenses, the more confusing the whole thing gets…

On a lot of occasions it seems that you can use a number of different Tenses, for instance – “I’m going to the movies tonight”, “I’ll go to the movies”, “I’ll be going to the movies” – so how do you know which one is right?

And the more you analyze all this kind of stuff, the more confusing it gets and eventually you start feeling that you know nothing about English grammar!

Now, watch this video above where I’m giving precious advice on how to approach such a state of mind, and if you’ve got any questions – don’t hesitate to publish them in the comments section below!

    Robby, first of all I’d like to thank you for your work, your advice and useful answers! I started reading the blog articles from the very beginning and suddenly felt a kind of ambiguity.
    Earlier you recommended to use Present Progressive almost in any case, because most of the events are already planned (or pre-planned) and ‘going to’ means only an intention. But in this video you say “Stick with ‘going to ‘ as your standard future’ and give an example ‘I’m going to sing at the concert tomorrow’. Isn’t it already arranged?
    There was also advice to say ‘going to’ when the suggestion is like very obvious (the result of the match when there are only two minutes left). And then I come across ‘You are going to feel the effect immediately’. Well, people differ, so their tastes.
    Would you help me to clear this, please? Thanks in advance.

  • It’s YOU who I have to thank – and if not for your lengthy e-mail, I wouldn’t have made this video! 😉 So yes, don’t be too hung up on the tenses etc., just stick with those few rules I mentioned in the video and don’t analyze the language too much, just speak as much as you can! 😉
