Seri Latihan Soal Incomplete Dialogue Reading Ujian Bahasa Inggris SMK ; Future Activity

Dalam ungkapan yang menunjukkan bentuk aktifitas di masa akan datang (future activity) hal yang paling penting adalah bisa membedakan penggunaan bentuk " be going to" dan 'will" sebagai ekspresi yang diterapkan pada future activity

Berikut sedikit penjelasan mengenai perbedaan kedua bentuk tersebut sebelum berranjak ke dalam latihan soal tentang "future activity".

#1. Keduanya baik "will" maupun "be going to" menyatakan aktifitas yang akan datang.

will : digunakan ketika kita ingin melakukan sesuatu tanpa suatu perencanaan sebelumnya. Biasanya bersifat spontanitas.
Contoh :

Helen : My bicycle has a flat tire. Can you repair it to me?
Father : Okay, but I can't do it now. I'll repair it tomorrow.

Be going to : digunakan ketika kita sudah siap  memutuskan untuk melakukan sesuatu .
Contoh : 

Mother : Can you repair Helen's bicycle? It has a flat tire.
Father : Yes, I know. She told me. I'm going to repair it tomorrow.

*** Ayahnya Helen sudah merencanakan untuk memperbaiki ban sepeda Helen sebelumnya.

#2. Prediksi kejadian di masa akan datang
Keduanya mengatakan apa yang akan terjadi (prediksi tentang apa yang terjadi di masa akan datang)
Contoh : 
  • Do you think Tom will get  the job?
  • Oh dear, It's already 4 o'clock. We're going to be late.

Going to : Menyatakan situasi dimana sesuatu memang nyata akan terjadi.
Contoh :
  • Look at those black clouds. It's going to rain ( awan yang dilihat menunjukkan akan terjadinya hujan)
  • I feel terrible. I think I'm going to be sick. (saya merasa tidak enak badan sekarang)
NB :
Kita juga biasanya menggunakan bentuk present continuous untuk menyatakan kejadian yang sudah disusun atau direncanakan sebelumnya.
Contoh :
  • What time are you meeting Ann? (atau Are you going to meet?)
  • I'm traveling to Scotland on Monday (atau I'm going to travel)

Dalam soal incomplete dialog, soal yang menunjukkan bentuk future activity biasanya dilihat berdasarkan kata kunci (keyword) penggunaan kata atau phrase "will" dan "be going to" pada konteks percakapan yang terjadi.
