Grammar - Future[edit]

In Spanish, the future has the same function as the future in English - to state things that will happen. Its use is equal to verbs ending in -ar, -er and -ir for regular verbs.

Example:

Verb Hablar Comer Vivir
yo hablar - é comer - é viver - é
tu hablar - ás comer - ás viver - ás
el/usted hablar - á comer - á viver - á
nosotros hablar - emos comer - emos viver - emos
vosotros hablar - éis comer - éis viver - éis
ellos/ustedes hablar - án comer - án viver - án

There are some irregular verbs that have different conjugations in the future for the first person - yo:

  • venir: vendr - é
  • tener: tendr - é
  • poner: pondr - é
  • salir: saldr - é
  • poder: podr - é
  • hacer: har -e
  • querer: querr - é

Functions[edit]

Soon realization[edit]

To express a plan for soon realization you need to use ir a + infinitivo. Example: Voy a visitar mi amigo. This means I'll leave to visit my friend soon, maybe in the next hour.

Realization decided[edit]

To express that a plan is really going to happen you need to use pensar + infinitivo. Example: Penso visitar mi amigo. This means I will, but maybe in weekend, maybe next week.

Realization not decided yet[edit]

To express that a plan may happen as you are not sure use estar pensando en + infinitivo. Example: Estoy pensando en visitar mi amigo. This means I am just planning, not sure yet.
