The true future indicative (futuro de indicativo) forms developed from the joining of the infinitive of the verb in question and the present indicative of the verb ‘haber.’:

Third Person Pluralhablar

Note that the vosotros form varies slightly from the complete joining of the haber form with the infinitive.

Note too that all forms carry a written accent except the nosotros form where it is not needed to maintain the appropriate stress.

Uses

The future tense is used almost exactly as in English, and, just as rarely as in English. In both English and Spanish, in common usage, most people are just as likely to use a “going to…”, or “ir a…” construction to express the immediate future or their future plans.

The Future of Probability

Spanish also uses the Future tense to express probability, referred to as “the future of probability“. The English equivalent of this is often expressed by “I wonder…?”

Ex.:

  • I wonder if any emails have arrived? (¿Me habrá llegado algún email?)
  • I wonder who that could be? (¿Quién será?)
  • I wonder if anyone will notice? (¿Se dará cuenta alguien?)
