'Sắp' and 'sẽ' are words used in Vietnamese language to talk about future actions. 'Sẽ' can be translated as 'will' and is used more generally for actions that will occur in the future. 'Sắp', on the other hand, translates to 'about to', and is typically used for actions that are going to happen very soon or are on the verge of happening. Both are placed before the verb in a sentence.
