We are going to miss you

This phrase is correct and commonly used in English to express that someone will be missed in the future.

This phrase is used to convey the sentiment that the speaker will feel the absence of the person being addressed in the future.

Examples:

  • We are going to miss you when you leave for college.
  • I am going to miss you so much when you move away.
  • They are going to miss you at the party tonight.

Alternatives:

  • We will miss you

  • We're going to feel your absence

We will miss you

This phrase is correct and commonly used in English to express that someone will be missed in the future.

This phrase is used to convey the sentiment that the speaker will feel the absence of the person being addressed in the future.

Examples:

  • We will miss you when you move to another country.
  • I will miss you terribly when you're gone.
  • They will miss you at the event next week.

Alternatives:

  • We are going to miss you
  • We'll miss you
  • We're going to feel your absence
  • We'll feel your absence
  • We'll be sad to see you go
The phrases are both correct and they are common English expressions. They convey the same meaning of expressing that someone will be missed. The choice between 'we are going to miss you' and 'we will miss you' depends on personal preference or the context in which they are used.
