4.的確，許多臺灣的文法書寫到「be going to」後面應該避免再加上go、come、leave等字。 但本公司外籍教師認為在現今美語此規則並未存在。 例如，我們在許多國外教科書都發現有「be going to go」的用法：
▲ I'm going to go to the beach. (Jack Richards主編 New Interchange 2 p. 29 Cambridge 出版社2005出版) ▲ Are you going to go to the movies? (Michael McCarthy主編Touchstone 2 p. 37 Cambridge 出版社2005出版) ▲ We're going to go somewhere for dinner. (Michael McCarthy主編Touchstone 2 p. 37 Cambridge 出版社2005出版) ▲ I just finished my homework. Now I'm going to go shopping. (大家說英語2002年8月號 p. 30)
本公司外籍老師認為：若有情境的話，「going to go home」和「going home」是有差別的。如你看到你同事在整理包包，你猜他準備要回家了，你可以詢問他：Are you going to go home?或者Are you going home?。但你若是路上，但到你同事行色匆匆，你大概只會問他Are you going home?。
