Thanks for the exercise!.

Could you explain me the difference between the use of "I'm going to do that" and "I will do that" when I'm talking about the future?

Thanks.

Thanks!.

Activity 05 :
--------------------
I’m finally (5) GETTING TO do what I have always wanted to do.

Is that mean "Opportunity" or something else?

Hello amit_ck
Yes, it means that you are finally able to do what you have always wanted to do.

Thanks Krik

Could you please simply explain what they are exactly wanted to say, and can we use them in our daily conversation.
1) Johnny: Go on! WHAT HAVE YOU GOT TO LOSE?
2) Harry: I’m sure I CAN SQUEEZE YOU IN...
3) Olivia: OK, but DON’T LOSE ANY SLEEP OVER IT.

Hello amit_ck,
The quickest way to check the meaning of phrases like this is to use an online dictionary. For example:
What have you got to lose?

I can squeeze you in

...don't lose any sleep over it

I don't understand some lines(but there is no real job on offer) why it isn't just thee is no job
(perhaps not as yet) what about just not yet
(don't lose any sleep over it)
(I can’t afford much more) what if its just can't afford more

Hi there, can you explain this to me? "Harry: Slow down. Will you!" What does it mean? According to this exclamation mark after you(Will you!), is it an exclamatory sentence or something else? Thank you very much.
