Irregular Spanish Future Tense

The irregularities in the future tense are a bit difficult to predict. You will be happy to know that ser and estar, which are irregular in almost every other tense, are completely regular in the future. It’s the following that you have to look out for:

 

Irregular –ER verbs

Irregular –IR verbs

 

SABER
to know

PONER
to put

VENIR
to come

SALIR
to leave, go out

yo

sabré

pondré

vendré

saldré

sabrás

pondrás

vendrás

saldrás

Ud., él, ella,

sabrá

pondrá

vendrá

saldrá

nosotros/as

sabremos

pondremos

vendremos

saldremos

vosotros/as

sabréis

pondréis

vendréis

saldréis

Uds., ellos, ellas

sabrán

pondrán

vendrán

saldrán

You will notice that the irregular –er verbs drop the –e from the infinitive ending, while the irregular –ir verbs replace the –i with an –r.

Other common verbs that follow this irregularity are:

poder: podré, podrás, podrá, podremos, podréis, podrán querer: querré, querrás, querrá, querremos, querréis, querrán tener: tendré, tendrás, tendrá, tendremos, tendréis, tendrán valer: valdré, valdrás, valdrá, valdremos, valdréis, valdrán

There are two verbs that have an even stranger stem change in the future tense. You will simply have to memorize these.

This program has been amazing! I purchased it about three years ago and I can now easily have conversations in Spanish. I am told very often that I have very good Spanish by fluent speakers. I focused for a solid year and listened and studied to the material for about 3-4 hours a day. Spanish is not easy, but you can't give up or you will forget everything that you learned.

I started the program when my daughter was 8 months old because I wanted us both to learn Spanish. Once I started the program, I started only speaking to her in Spanish and I continue to ONLY speak to her in Spanish every day. Now my daughter is 3 1/2 years old and she can speak and understand Spanish perfectly. Without Rocket Spanish, we would've never learned how to speak Spanish which would've created a major language barrier between my daughter and her grandparents (my in-laws) because they do not know English. Now we are both able to communicate with our entire family, and now I am just perfecting my accent. Fortunately, my husband speaks fluent Spanish, but he couldn't teach me because I needed to understand the rules behind the language which he does not know. Rocket Spanish's grammar lessons were perfect and enabled me to understand the logic behind many of the common language errors (i.e, when to use the subjective tense).

I am constantly telling people about Rocket Spanish and I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn a language!!
