LEARN ENGLISH FUTURE SIMPLE VERBS
To form the future simple tense we need to place
"will" in front of another verb. Sometimes we can find the form "shall" instead
of "will" for the persons "I" and "we".
I shall buy a book on computers. (Me compraré un libro sobre ordenadores)
They will play football again very soon. (Jugarán al fútbol muy pronto otra vez)
Jared, I will always love you. (Jared, siempre te querré).
For the negative form we use
"not" after "will" or
I will not (won't) go to the cinema with them. (No iré al cine con ellos)
We will not (won't) stay in that hotel ever again. (No nos alojaremos en ese hotel nunca más)
For the interrogative form we place "will" or "shall" in front of the person.
Will you go abroad some time? (¿Irás al extranjero alguna vez?)
Will they finish that course they started? (¿Terminarán ese curso que empezaron?)
SOME GENERAL USES
We use the future simple to talk about future actions
She will go to university when she finishes secondary school. (Ella irá a la universidad cuando termine el instituto)
Will she go to University when she finishes secondary school? (¿Irá ella a la universidad cuando termine el instituto?)
They will run to the finish line. (Correrán hasta la meta)
We will be here at eight. (Estaremos aquí a las ocho)
Sometimes we use the future simple tense when we speak about a
future time that is not very close to the moment of speaking. We can use the future
simple for predictions, ideas for the future or intentions.
They will get very good jobs. (Conseguirán unos empleos muy buenos)
this example the speaker predicts
that the people he or she is talking about could get very good jobs in the future,
but there is not certainty in the way of expressing the fact of "getting very good
jobs". We also use the future simple to express decisions made in the very moment
You dropped your purse; I will get it for you. (Se te ha caído el monedero; yo te lo recojo)
I forgot to phone my boss, I will phone him right now. (Se me ha olvidado llamar a mi jefe, lo llamaré ahora mismo)
Lets us conjugate a verb as an example. We are going to take the verb "to study".
