Are we going rock-climbing? No, stop trying to guess. You'll know once we get there. Wow! Are we going to Ocean Park? Yes! Surprise! What a fantastic surprise! Oh my gosh, we're going to have so much fun! Let's go! LANGUAGE TIPS We usually use 'going to' to indicate (1) a place that we're going (Are we going to Ocean Park?), (2) something that we will do (we're going to have lunch tomorrow), or (3) something that will happen (we're going to have so much fun). However, when we refer to an activity, we tend to drop the word 'to' and use the '-ing' form instead. So we say 'Are we going rock-climbing?' instead of 'Are we going to rock-climb?'. DATING TIPS 1. When you go on a double date, do something that involves the whole group, eg bowling, karaoke instead of canoeing. 2. Plan a simple surprise every now and then. 3. Plan an activity that the other person will probably like.
