This post is about the grammar construction that is used for the unlikely future and the untrue present. This construction is often known as the "2nd Conditional". An example is: "If I had a million pounds, I would be able to drink champagne every day."
For most informal sentences about the future, we can use the construction [ “am” / “is” / “are” ] + [ “going to” ]. For future meaning in formal language, we avoid “going to”, and “-ing” in general, preferring “will”.
