we use going to + a verb to say that we have a definite future plan or intention, e.g., I’m going to take a holiday. However, sometimes we have not made up our minds, or we are not sure about our plans. Our intention is indefinite so we say thinking of/about rather than going to, e.g., I’m thinking of/about taking a holiday. A1 Read the following sentences and decide whether the statements are definite or indefinite. Write ‘D’ for definite and ‘I’ for indefinite. 1 She’s going to buy a new dress. 2 I’m thinking of going to the cinema. 3 Mary’s thinking of learning to play the piano. 4 Cindy’s parents are going to fly home. 5 We’re thinking of starting a music club. 6 I’m going to go to bed.

Can I come? OK, at two thirty. Why? OK. I’ll remember it. Bye. Bye. *A6 Work in pairs to make conversations like the example below. S1 is May. S2 is Rita.
