I read grammar book yesterday, and found present progressive tense can be used for future situation. I was surprised that I had not known that before, maybe it was because I had been always nodding during English classes. English tense always confusing me a lot.

According to the book, if you have decided and arranged something, you should use
“I am doing”, but not “I will”. Thus, “What time will you leave tomorrow?” is a wrong way saying. Next time, when I meet a customer visiting Taiwan, I should ask “What time are you leaving tomorrow?” Hope that customer will not feel strange to hear that.
