So I was going to say something the other day like

"After eating this, you are going to want to go there."

I wanted to express that after eating that, the person would end up with a wish about going to some place. It's taken out of context, it could be a restaurant or so here.

  1. Is this a correct/good way of saying this? What gave me some doubts is that it was kind of a messy sentence to say. It has two "go" in it and everything.
  2. Is perhaps the formulation "After eating this, you will want to go to there" better? As I understood from the thread below though, "you will want to" is more intended for instructions. So how would this fit here? What does "you will want to" mean?
    1. Is this thing expressed differently in different regions?

The other day was one of the first day of my life that I spent in an English speaking country, so I realized that I've got to step up my game a few notches :)

  • That was a great thread, thank you. I couldn't find the answers to my specific questions in it though. – Langzzor Aug 29 '14 at 2:52
  • OK, you’ve got a point that the juxtaposition of “going to …” and “go” is a little bit awkward. But people say things like “I’m going to go to the meeting” all the time, and nobody bats an eye. I believe that’s not a real problem. But the “you will” formulation is fine, too. As the What does “you will want to” mean? thread’s accepted answer says, it doesn’t necessarily refer to instruction. I would add “If you are assigned to building X, you will want to take a sweater (because it’s always very cold there).” to rsegal’s perfectly good examples. – Scott Aug 29 '14 at 16:16
