This is the 16th Spanish lesson in the Pre-Intermediate Spanish Practice Course. This is an interactive Spanish video where you have the opportunity to practice Spanish at pre-intermediate level with a native Spanish speaker.
In this interactive Spanish video lesson we will practice using the Spanish future tense which is the equivalent to Going to in English Voy a Vas a, etc. For example if I wanted to say “I am going to do ….” in Spanish I would say “Voy a hacer …” With this tense we use the structure Ir + a + verb and it is very easy to conjugate for all of the different persons, particularly as the verb never changes and always remains in its infinitive/base form. So far in this course and the Beginner Practice Course we have looked mainly at the Spanish present tense. Now we will start expanding your repertoire so that you can also discuss future plans in Spanish.
Please try to watch the video first before looking at the lesson notes. Answers to all tasks involved in the lesson will be given at the end of the post. Try not to look at the answers until you have tried a good few times to give your own responses.
This lesson practices the information taught in Pre-Intermediate Spanish Lesson 16: Using the Spanish future tense Voy a Going to from my Pre-Intermediate Spanish Course.
Crea frases en futuro con la persona y el verbo que te doy:
Create sentences in the future with the person and the verb I give you. For example, if I say “Yo/comer”, you should say “Voy a comer” which means “I am going to eat”. If I say “question” then you should make the intonation of a question. For example with “Tú/escribir” (Question) you should say “¿Vas a escribir?” which means “Are you going to write?”:
1. Nosotros/ hablar
2. Ustedes/ salir con los amigos (Question)
3. Tú/ estudiar (Question)
4. Ella/ cenar
5. Yo/ beber agua
6. Usted/ jugar al fútbol (Question)
7. Vosotros/ ir a la playa (Question)
8. Ellos/ trabajar mucho
Now make a few sentences telling me what you are going to do tomorrow:
1. Vamos a hablar
2. ¿Ustedes van a salir con los amigos?
3. ¿Vas a estudiar?
4. Va a cenar
5. Voy a beber agua
6. ¿Usted va a jugar al fútbol?
7. ¿Váis a ir a la playa?
8. Ellos van a trabajar mucho
