Remember: Be Going To

This awesome activity was provided by a reader, Fabiana de Souza. Thanks, Fabiana, for sharing such an enriching task.






My name's Fabiana. I'm Paranaense but I live in Sorocaba - São Paulo.
I love studying and teaching English. It's something that makes me really happy.
I work at Dialeto Idiomas (www.dialetoidiomas.com.br) and I use Claudio's website a lot (I'm a big fan).
Enjoy your studies everybody.
