How to apply will in Spanish?

ar, er, ir

There are two ways to form the Future Tense in Spanish: the Informal Future (ir + a + infinitive) and the Simple Future. The Simple Future, unlike the Informal Future, is expressed in a single word.

The Spanish Simple Future is used to talk about what will or shall happen. It is also used to express the possibility of what someone might or may be doing in the present.

Note: To form the Simple Future Tense, simply add the correct ending to the infinitive of the verb. All verb conjugations "- ar- er, and - ir" have the same endings in the Simple Future tense.

Uses of the Simple Future

While the Simple Future is most often used to talk about what a person will do, it can also be used to talk about conjecture, possibilities, and probabilities in the present, make predictions about the future, and give solemn commands.

 

Conjectures, Possibilities, and Probabilities 

e.g.

Anita estará en la playa ahora. - Anita is probably at the beach right now.
 
Los niños tendrán hambre.-  The children might be hungry.
 
Serán las ocho de la mañana.-  It must be eight o'clock in the morning.
 
¿Dónde estarán mis llaves?-  Where could my keys be?
 
¿Cuántos años tendrá el profesor?-  I wonder how old the professor is?

 

Predictions about the Future

e.g.
 
Me casaré con un hombre guapo.-  I will marry a handsome man.
 
Encontrará un trabajo bueno. - He will find a good job.



The Simple Future can also be used in conditional sentences with "si" (if) to talk about what someone will do. In sentences like this, the verb immediately after "si" is in the Present Tense, while the verb in the other part of the sentence is in the Simple Future.
 
e.g.

Si tengo tiempo, saldré a correr en la tarde.-  If I have time, I'll go to run in the afternoon.

 

Solemn Commands


e.g. 


No robarás.-  You shall/will not steal.
 
Te sentarás aquí hasta que regrese.- You shall/will sit right here until I return.
 
Obedecerás a tus abuelos. -You shall/will obey your grandparents.

 

Note: In Spanish, it's very common for the Present Tense to be used to talk about Future events that are certain. 


e.g.
 
Te veo mañana en la escuela. -I’ll see you tomorrow at school.
 
Me caso el 6 de mayo.- I will get married on May 6.
 

 Mis padres me visitan mañana. - My parents will visit me tomorrow
