Future

The future is one of the 3 tenses (present, past, and future) we will be discussing in the next 3 lessons. So it is recommended not to skip any of them because they are all related.

Grammar Rule

The future tense in Spanish is very easy to conjugate. Just like in English, the future tense in Spanish is used to describe events happening at in the future: ella estudiará con nosotros. (She will study with us).

To be able to conjugate a verb properly in Spanish, you need simply need to:

  1. Use the infinitive of a given verb (hablar, comer, vivir) + (é,ás,á,emos,án)
  2. If the verb is irregular, then use the modified infinitive + (é,ás,á,emos,án)
  3. Another simple method is to add the ir + a + infinitive of verb. Example: voy a estudiar (I will study)

Here are examples of the 3 methods:

Future of Regular Verbs [Infinitive + (é,ás,á,emos,án)]

  1. Pensar (to think): yo pensaré, tu pensarás, el/ella pensará, nosotros pensaremos, ellos/ellas/Uds pensarán
  2. Comer (to eat): yo comeré, tu comerás, el/ella comerá, nosotros comeremos, ellos/ellas/Uds comerán
  3. Vivir (to live): yo viviré, tu vivirás, el/ella vivirá, nosotros viviremos, ellos/ellas/Uds vivirán

Future of Irregular Verbs [modified infinitive + (é,ás,á,emos,án)]

  • Encontrar (to find): yo encontré, tu encontrás, el/ella encontrá, nosotros encontremos, ellos/ellas/Uds encontrán
  • Saber (to know): yo sabré, tu sabrás, el/ella sabrá, nosotros sabremos, ellos/ellas/Uds sabrán
  • Decir (to say): yo diré, tu dirás, el/ella dirá, nosotros diremos, ellos/ellas/Uds dirán

Future with [ir + a + infinitive of verb]

  • Pensar (to think): voy a pensar, vas a pensar, va a pensar, vamos a pensar, van a pensar
  • Comer (to eat): voy a comer, vas a comer, va a comer, vamos a comer, van a comer
  • Decir (to say): voy a decir, vas a decir, va a decir, vamos a decir, van a decir

Overview

  1. If a verb is regular and ending in (~ar, ~er, ~ir) use the following: infinitive + é,ás,á,emos,án
  2. Usually, if a verb is iregular use the following: irregular verb stem + é,ás.á,emos,án
