The Future Tense

I. Intro

In this lesson, we will talk about the future. We’ve already learned a few useful ways to express future time – ir + a, or simply using the simple present tense for a future meaning (just like we do in English). Now we’re going to learn the form that corresponds to the use of the word “will” in English. It’s called the future simple tense, and we use it when we are not so sure if something *will* happen.

II. Form

Forming the future simple is easy. Take the infinitive verb and add the following endings:

-emos
-ás
-a -án

Examples:

HABLAR

COMER

VIVIR

hablaré comeré viviré
hablarás comerás vivirás
hablará comerá vivirá
hablaremos comeremos viviremos
hablarán comerán vivirán

The future verb endings never change - they are exactly the same for every verb. There are, however, 12 irregular future infinitive stems:
