你剛好要去用餐,外籍老闆問你,可不可以幫他到乾洗店拿件洗好的衣服。以下有三個答案,你會怎麼回答?

A. I'm going to pick it up for you.
B. I'll pick it up for you.
C. Pick it up yourself! You, lazy bum! 


C
是開玩笑的,想被炒魷魚,不妨一試。但AB到底哪個好?willbe going to 有時也可以替換,也許都沒有錯,但其中有一個,是老外會用的,你猜是哪一個?今天我們就來看看willbe going to有什麼不一樣。

Will 

1. Promises – will 
是一種承諾。
Johnny: Mom, if I get 100 on my math test, will you take me out for ice cream? 
Mom: Yes, I'll take you out for ice cream. I promise. 

2. Offers to help – 
願意幫忙別人時也用will 
Patricia: I lost my ring.
Brian: No problem. I'll help you find it.

3. Request for help – 
請人幫忙時用will 
Peter: I need to change the oil in my car. Will you help me?
William: Of course, I'll help you.

Would會更有禮貌。
I need to change the oil in my car. Are you going to help me? 
這樣的問法有點粗率,不夠禮貌。

4. Predictions about the future – 
預測未來時用will
Heather: Some statisticians predict that there will be10 billion people in the world by 2050.
Melinda: I think they are right. I heard there won't be enough food in the world for everyone.
Will 
常用於預測,但也可以用be going to.

5. Refusal of things - 
拒絕時也用will
Walter: I can't open this bottle of wine.
Sally: Yeah. The cork won't come out.

Be Going To

 

1. State a plan or intention -代表一項計畫、意向或行動時,用be going to

Holly: What are you going to do this summer?
Mandy: I am going to travel across Europe. I am going to see everything from the Eiffel Tower to the Coliseum in Rome.

回到我們稍早的問題:
A. I'm going to pick it up for you. 
B. I'll pick it up for you. 
哪個好呢?用我們學到的規則,這是願意幫忙,所以B比較好。A也不算錯,它的意思更接近我正要去幫你拿
