When we want to talk about future facts or things we believe to be true about the future, we use 'will'.

•  The President will serve for four years.
•  The boss won't be very happy.
•  I'm sure you'll like her.
•  I'm certain he'll do a good job.

If we are not so certain about the future, we use 'will' with expressions such as 'probably', 'possibly', 'I think', 'I hope'.

•  I hope you'll visit me in my home one day.
•  She'll probably be a great success.
•  I'll possibly come but I may not get back in time.
•  I think we'll get on well.

If you are making a future prediction based on evidence in the present situation, use 'going to'.

•  Not a cloud in the sky. It's going to be another warm day.
•  Look at the queue. We're not going to get in for hours.
•  The traffic is terrible. We're going to miss our flight.
•  Be careful! You're going to spill your coffee.

At the moment of making a decision, use 'will'. Once you have made the decision, talk about it using 'going to'.

•  I'll call Jenny to let her know. Sarah, I need Jenny's number. I'm going to call her about the meeting.
•  I'll come and have a drink with you but I must let Harry know. Harry, I'm going to have a drink with Simon.
