I am reading a English book and in simple present tense section it is mentioned that simple present tense can be used to express planned events of near future, but in present continuous section same thing is mentioned for present continuous as well.
So, my question is whether both of below sentences are grammatically correct?
- I leave for New York tomorrow
- I am leaving to New York tomorrow
I did more research and it looks like planned near future actions can be expressed using simple present, simple future and present continuous. So, all below examples are correct:
- PM leaves for US tomorrow
- PM is leaving for US tomorrow
- PM will leave for US tomorrow
- PM will be leaving for US tomorrow
Could someone please confirm/correct my understanding.
P.S.: Actually I am preparing for an English Grammar exam so want to know technically correct/acceptable usage, and not colloquial usage.
