Homework Help: English

Posted by Ilma on Sunday, February 5, 2012 at 12:45pm.

Hello.
I apologize for bothering you with similar questions but I'm supposed to explain the difference in tenses in the following English sentences taken from the original English press. Will you help me please? The context is absolutely the same, but the tenses are different:
1)President Obama will speak on Libya tonight at 7:30. (emphasis on a fact, he will start speaking at this time, right?)
2)President Obama will be speaking on Libya tonight at 7:30. ( emphasis on a planned and expected action?)
3)President Obama is speaking on Libya tonight at 7:30 (again, a planned action which is to take place soon?)
4)President Obama speaks on Libya tonight at 7:30 (emphasis on a timetable?)
I will really appreciate your answer. Thank you very much for help.
