Reminder - How to make predictions?
Use will or ‘ll for general predictions / feelings you have
about the future. These are often based on personal opinion/feelings/faith
rather than evidence.
You can moderate will with adverbs and adverbial expressions like I will
probably…/It will most likely..
Use “going to” if you think there is more evidence in support of your prediction.
Using “going to” makes it sound more universally likely.
Use “I hope” for hopes/desires for future events.
