Near Future

Le futur proche

aller + infinitif – to be about + infinitive – What is the near future in French? How does the near future work in French? 

The expression ‘ALLER + infinitive verb’ expresses the notion of to be about to + infinitiveto be going to + infinitive. When ALLER is in the present tense, it’s called the near future because it’s closer in time and/or more likely to happen than ‘le futur simple’ the regular French future tense.
