Some things to note:

  1. Endings in the future tense are attached to the infinitive, not just the stem, of the verb.
  2. -AR, -ER, and -IR verbs all take the same endings.
  3. If these endings look familiar, it is because they are the same as the -ER/-IR endings of the imperfect tense. And thus, as with the imperfect, the yo and él forms are the same and may use subject pronouns for clarity.
