One important detail about “WILL” is that it is most often used to discuss things or situations that may take a long time to happen. The expression “WILL” is used in the following situations:

Dreams – ex. Someday I will learn another language.

Promises – ex. I promise I’ll call you tonight!

To express actions that are far into the future – ex. I will get married someday. 

Requests – ex. Will you buy a hamburger for me? Thank you!

After making a decision – ex. Yes! I will marry you!

Help/Volunteer – ex. I’ll volunteer at this event tonight!

GOING TO

One important detail about “GOING TO” is that it is most often used to discuss things or situations that might happen soon. The expression “GOING TO” is used in the following situations:

Definite plans – ex. I am going to help you with your English!

Immediate actions – ex. I’m going to eat lunch with my friend tomorrow (not 3 years from now).

Actions that will happen soon – ex. I’m going to be a doctor someday.

Anticipation – ex. Are you going to download our free Ebook?

Predicting a future action – ex. The weather is going to be very cold today.

SO BREAK IT DOWN FOR ME

When you are plans are definite, use GOING TO. When you dream of doing something, use WILL.

When you’re talking about actions that are far into the future (months or maybe years from now), use WILL. When you’re talking about actions that you will do soon (tomorrow or next week), use GOING TO.

When you want to ask/request for something, use WILL). When you’re expecting/anticipating something to happen, use GOING TO.

Finally, when you promise something, use ‘WILL!’

Q: How do you say this in English (US)? it is me what decides it will.
is this correct for will's place
and is this correct these question 😵
A: Maybe, "It's me who will decide it." or "I will decide."
Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? what is the different between will and is going to ?
A: @yiershae
I'm going to date her.
I will date her.
In these cases, both seem to have a very high level of certainty. As though no matter what, you will find a way to date her.

However,
"I'm going on a date with her."
This suggests you have already asked her out and she said yes. You have already planned it.
But
"I will go on a date with her."
This seems similar to "I'm going to date her/I will date her." It's like you have decided that you will ask her on a date in the future, but you haven't asked her yet.

I hope this is helpful!
