Homework Help: English

Posted by Mia on Tuesday, January 16, 2007 at 9:34am.

How does one explain the difference in usage between "I am going to go get it." and "I will go and get it." Correct terms, please, to help a foreign student.

I am going = present progressive tense

I will go and get = future tense, compound verb

to get = infinitive form

Scroll about half-way down for information on present progressive.
