By this time next year I'll have spoken English better than now. I hope I'll be working in a good place soon, in this moment I'm unemployed.

Hello, I have read we can also use the future continuous in prediction. I want to know what is the difference between those examples: 'Those clouds look very dark. It will be raining.' and 'Look at those clouds. It's going to rain.' Thank you

At the moment, I am trying to learn English. I will be approaching IE 6.5 in the next 6 months. But I won't be working in a different job, I really love my current job, the website developer. If I get a good IE result, I will receive the approval from New Zealand university. I hope to be living in New Zealand by the end of next year and I will apply myself at the university to have a better future.
