The future tense (el futuro simple in Spanish) is used to talk about something that will happen or will be true in the future.
The formation of this tense is probably the simplest of all tenses. We just need the infinitive of the verb + add the endings -é, -ás, -á, emos, -éis, -án. These endings are the same for all verbs (-AR, -ER, -IR).
Most verbs are regularly conjugated in the futuro simple and are very easy to form.
|él/ ella/ usted||hablará||comerá||vivirá|
|ellos/ ellas/ ustedes||hablarán||comerán||vivirán|
Some of the verbs in future have an irregular stem but we still add the regular endings -é, -ás, -á, emos, -éis, -án
|querer (to want)||querré, querrás, querrá...|
|decir (to say)||diré, dirás, dirá...|
|hacer (to do)||haré, harás, hará...|
|haber (to have)||habré, habrás, habrá...|
|saber (to know)||sabré, sabrás, sabrá...|
|poder (to be able to)||podré, podrás, podrá...|
|poner (to put)||pondré, pondrás, pondrá...|
|venir (to come)||vendré, vendrás, vendrá...|
|tener (to have)||tendré, tendrás, tendrá...|
|salir (to leave)||saldré, saldrás, saldrá...|
|caber (to fit)||cabré, cabrás, cabrá...|
Note that ser and estar are highly irregular verbs except in the future that follow the regular pattern
The futuro simple is used to indicate plans or actions that will take place in the future. However, the future tense in Spanish communicates other messages as well.
Note that in the las example the English equivalent is an indirect question preceeded by I wonder
Here are some frequently time expressions that indicate the future.
|A la una, a las dos de la tarde…||At one, at two in the afternoon...|
|De aquí a dos días||In two days…|
|El año que viene / El lunes que viene||Next year / Next Monday...|
|El martes||On Tuesday|
|El mes que viene||Next month|
|En un mes / semana||In a month/week|
|Esta noche / Esta tarde||Tonight / This afternoon...|
|Esta primavera/verano||This spring/summer|
|La semana que viene||Next week|
|Mañana / Pasado mañana||Tomorrow / The day after tomorrow|
|Mañana por la mañana / noche / tarde||Tomorrow morning / night / afternoon|
