Default Re: going and going to

Hi Nunzia,

the first sentence is present continuous and the second sentence is a future form. However, since the present continuous CAN also be used for the future, both are correct:

I am going out tonight
I am going to go out tonight. (here 'going' means 'planning')

Since we could use both, it would be more natural to use the first one because it's less repetitive.
