I’m trying to understand the difference between this 3 tenses. Please tell me if I understand this correctly (especially future continues).

*Present continues – we use it when we have arranged <something> to do:
-What are you doing tomorrow evening?
– I’m going to the theatre. (I have the ticket)

*going to – we use it when we’ve decided to do <something>, but perhaps not arranged to do it
I’m going to clean my dirty shoes.

*Future continues – this is the most difficult for me. I think it’s something between the other two and we can use it interchangeably:
-Later I’ll be talking to the Minister of Education or Later I’m going to talk to the Minister of Education (my intention)
-I’ll be working tomorrow afternoon or I’m working tomorrow afternoon (it’s in my work schedule)
