I know we can use 'will be' to talk about future facts, eg.

l will be 34 tomorrow.

But, can we use 'going to be' instead of 'will be', at least in informal situations?

l'm going to be 34 tomorrow.

    Yes, you can. There's nothing wrong your sentence. – Varun Nair Oct 27 '17 at 8:55
  • @Nair That means they are totally synonymous? – Mido Mido Oct 27 '17 at 10:27
  • The going to be construction is informal, will can be used in both formal and informal situations. – semperos Oct 27 '17 at 13:45
  • @semperos Yea. Good explanation. – Mido Mido Oct 28 '17 at 9:33
