There are constructions like:

to be going to

used to

be used to

get used to

At what tenses can i use them? For example "to be going to" in past simple looks well: I was going to... But "to be going to" in future simple probably looks strange: I will be going to...

  • Sorry, but I have no idea what your asking. Can you focus on one question and explain clearly what your doubts are? – fev Jan 28 at 18:30

  • It's not what you can or can't use, it's what you want to say that should come first. How would you say something about a future event? I will get used to it. How about the past? I was used to going to the market on Wednesdays. You get the idea. – FeliniusRex Jan 28 at 21:02
  • I am going to already refers to the future, so no-one ever says I will be going to (except when go is used in its literal sense - When I am on holiday I will be going to bed late). – Kate Bunting Jan 29 at 9:58
