Spanish Future Tense, Regular Verbs Conjugation


Good news! Did you know that the Future tense is very easy to conjugate?
We already know that when conjugating a Spanish verb, we have to:

1. Take the stem

2. Add the corresponding endings to that stem, according to the tense.

So, for example, if we want to conjugate the Imperfect for the (regular) verb 'andar', we have to take its stem: 'and-', and add the imperfect endings:
(yo) and-aba
(tu) and-abas
(el/ella) and-aba
etc...

All the contrary, if we want to conjugate the Furute Tense, we don't need to take the stem of the verb, but just the INFINITIVE and then attach the future endings to it.

FUTURE ENDINGS
:
(yo) andar-é
(tu) andar-ás
(el/ella) andar-á
(nosotros) andar-emos
(vosotros) andar-éis
(ellos/ellas) andar-án

And another good thing is that there are few irregular verbs in future tense!

First, let's learn how to conjugate Regular Verbs in Future: As you can see below, the table shows the conjugation for First, Second and Third Conjugation Verbs, that's: verbs ending in -ar, -er and -ir.
