Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 57: Spanish future tense Will in Spanish (Part 2)

In this lesson we are going to learn more about the Spanish future grammar tense that corresponds with Will in English. In the previous Spanish lesson we looked at how to conjugate the verb endings for the regular Spanish verbs and in this next Spanish lesson in the series we will see irregular Spanish verbs connected with Will in Spanish, such as Querer (to want), Saber (to know) and Salir (to leave). Irregular Spanish verbs are those Spanish verbs which unfortunately do not follow the same regular rules as the majority of the verbs in a specific grammar tense. They pop up in all Spanish grammar tenses and are a little bit of a nuisance at first for the Spanish student who has painstakingly memorised off by heart all of the key Spanish grammar rules that apply to the regular Spanish verbs in each tense. However, with a bit of patience and practice you will find that really there are not so many irregular verbs and they are not so difficult to remember. In this course we have already seen the Spanish future grammar tense that corresponds with Going to in English and is constructed with Ir + a + verb. Both Spanish grammar tenses are used to speak about future plans in Spanish and both translate well to their equivalent uses in English, so they are quite straightforward to use.
