Learn How to Form the Future Tense of Spanish Verbs

How to Form the Future Tense of Spanish Verbs:

Today we will talk about how to form the future tense of Spanish verbs. We will focus on how to conjugate these with ar, ir, and er verbs. Unlike the present tense form, the future tense of Spanish verbs indicate an action that will be done in the near future.

Let’s start off with how to form the future tense of Spanish verbs that end with “ar“:

Consider the example of the Spanish verb bailar which means to dance.

yo bailaré = I will dance

tú bailarás = you (informal) will dance

él bailará = he will dance

ella bailará = she will dance

usted bailará = you will dance (formal)

nosotros bailaremos = we will dance

ellos bailarán = they will dance (can be males/females or mixed groups)

ellas bailarán = they will dance (only females)

ustedes bailarán = you all will dance (can be a group of males or females or mixed groups)

How to form the future tense of Spanish verbs that end with “er”:

Example: comer = to eat

Yo comeré = I will eat

tú comerás = you will eat (informal)

él comerá = he will eat

ella comerá = she will eat

usted comerá = you will eat (formal)

nosotros comeremos = we will eat

ellos comerán they will eat (can be all males or mixed group)

ellas comerán – they will eat (all females)

ustedes comerán = you will eat/you all will eat (plural)

How to form the future tense of Spanish verbs that end with “ir”

Let’s use the example of repetir which means to repeat.

yo repetiré = I will repeat

tú repetirás = you will repeat

él repetirá = he will repeat

ella repetirá = she will repeat

usted repetirá = you will repeat (formal)

nosotros repetiremos = we will repeat

ellos repetirán = they will repeat (can be males or mixed group)

ellas repetirán = they will repeat (only females)

ustedes repetirán = you will repeat (plural)

20 Common Irregular Present Participles in Spanish that you need to know

In our previous post here, we discussed how to form present participles in Spanish verbs. However today, we will show you some common irregular present participles in Spanish. Now these Spanish verbs are called irregular because when conjugated, they are formed a little different than the typical way we form the present participles. See a few below that I thought you might consider:

  1. vestirse – to dress oneself  – vistiendose
  2. vestir – to dress – vistiendo
  3. venir – to come – viniendo
  4. traer – to bring – trayendo
  5. servir – to servir – sirviendo
  6. seguir – to follow – siguiendo
  7. repetir – to repeat – repitiendo
  8. reír– to laugh – riendo
  9. poder – to be able – pudiendo
  10. pedir – to ask (for) or to request something – pidiendo
  11. oír– to hear – oyendo
  12. morir – to die – muriendo
  13. mentir – to lie – mintiendo
  14. leer – to read – leyendo
  15. ir – to go – yendo
  16. huir – to flee – huyendo
  17. dormir – to sleep – durmiendo
  18. divertirse – to enjoy oneself – divirtiendose
  19. destruir – to destroy – destruyendo
  20. decir – to say – diciendo

Keep in mind that these are just a few of the many irregular Spanish verbs that deviate from the typical dropping of the tails ar, er, and ir and adding the ando, iendo, iendo endings to infinitives. Don’t worry. Learning irregular present participles in Spanish are not hard if you have the right help. To schedule private online Spanish tutoring services, please visit here.

How to Form the Present Participles in Spanish Verbs:

Learning how to form the present participles tenses in Spanish verbs are really easy to do. To help you remember these forms, their English equivalents have ending of ing. Some examples of these would be words like dancing, eating, drinking, or walking just to name a few.

Now in Spanish, if you would like to know how to form the present participles in Spanish verbs for ar, er, and ir endings, you would follow this simple rule:

AR Spanish Verbs:

Drop the “ar” ending in a Spanish verb such as bailar, and simply add “ando” to create: bailando which means dancing in English.

Example: Estoy bailando con mi novia. = I am dancing with my girlfriend.

ER Spanish Verbs:

For Spanish verbs ending in “er” such as comer, you will need to drop the er ending and then add “iendo” to create: comiendo which is “eating” in English.

Example: Estamos comiendo almuerzo ahora mismo = We are eating lunch right now.

IR Spanish Verbs:

Finally for Spanish verbs that end with “ir” such as repetir, you must drop the ir tail and replace it with “iendo“. So repetir will become “repitiendo” which means repeating in English.

Example: Yo estoy repitiendo las reglas a los muchachos. = I am repeating the rules to the boys.
