    I just would like to be sure of the correctness of the following sentence :

    "I am going to go to Dublin next summer. I will be in the centre of the city."

    I think this sentence (right above) is correct but I can't tell you why, I'm just wondering if I could have said :

    ""I am going to go to Dublin next summer. I am going to be in the centre of the city."

    Both are correct, however the first sounds more authentic (because you repeat "going to" twice in the latter).

    Thank you. I'm glad to know the second sentence is correct. However, it sounds "heavy" to my ear. That's why I had this strange doubt.

    Both sentences are fine... but why not simply say:

    I'm going to Dublin next summer [...]

    English
    on peut dire
    I am going (to go) to the center of Dublin
    pour raccourcir cette phrase et eviter la probleme (correct my errors please)

    In English going to go and going, are mostly interchangeable either one sounds good
