THE FUTURE

the future tense is typically used for verbs whose action will take place sometime in the future. Generally, it is the equivalent of the “will + verb” form in English in sentences such as “I will go” or “she will eat.”
With regular verbs, the future tense is formed by adding endings to the infinitive. All infinitives use exactly the same endings as shown in boldface in the list below

yo                              
tú                               -ás
él, ella, Ud.                
nosotros,nosotras       -emos

vosotros vosotras        -éis
ellos, ellas, Uds.          -án

Conjugation Irregular Verbs
In general, most of the verbs that are irregular in the future tense modify and/or shorten the infinitive, but they all have the correct ending otherwise.

There are tree different types of irregularity
•    Suppression of the ending vowel of the infinitive
•    Suppression of the vowel and introduction of a –d-
•    Use of an irregular form of the verb

The verbs that suppress the ending vowel of the infinitive are: caber, haber, poder, querer, saber.
Example:

Yo sabré
Tú sabrás
El, ella Usted sabrá
Nosotros/as sabremos
Vosotros/as sabréis
Ellos/as Ustedes sabrán

The verbs that suppress the vowel and introduce a –d- are: poner, salir, tener, valer, venir.
Example

Yo tend
Tú tendrás
El, ella Usted tend
Nosotros/as tendremos
Vosotros/as tendréis
Ellos/as Ustedes tendrán
The verbs that use an irregular form of the infinitive are: decir, hacer
