I'm a student studying TEFL, and am doing an essay on teaching the difference between 'going to' and 'will' when refering to the future. I'm struggling a little bit and have a few questions, if anyone could help me out or give an opinion on any of the following points that'd be fantastic.
- What difficulties might a student find in learning the distinction
- Would there be problems for a particular nationality (L1 speaker)
and very embarrasingly for an English student...I'm not sure on the difference between form, function and meaning, so if anyone could clarify that for me that would be great (especially if they wanted to use 'going to' and 'will' as examples!)
