The future tense in Spanish

Spanish verbs have a single-word form that carries roughly the meaning of English will or 'll (as in we will try, he'll eat, they'll come etc). This form is generally called the future tense. Here are some examples of the future tense in Spanish:

I'll speak
we'll eat
he'll/she'll/it'll come1

Note that in general:

  • the future tense of most verbs consists of the infinitive plus an ending;
  • occasionally, a slightly modified form of the infinitive is used (vendrá, not venirá).

1. Of course, this could also be an usted form, meaning you'll come.
