- I'm going to buy some books tomorrow.
- Sarah is going to sell her car.
- I'm not going to have breakfast this morning. I'm not hungry.
- What are you going to wear to the party on Saturday?
- "Your hair is dirty." "Yes, I know. I'm going to wash it."
- Are you going to invite John to your party?
 
You can say that something is going to happen when it is clear now that it is sure to happen:
 
- Look at the sky! It's going to rain.
(black clouds now → rain)
- Oh dear! It's 9 o'clock and I'm not ready.
I'm going to be late.
(9 o'clock now and not ready → late)

We also use the Present Continuous (I am -ing) for the future, usually for arrangements (see Unit 21 What are you doing tomorrow? (Present for the future)):
- I am playing tennis with Jack tomorrow.
