The future is one of the simplest Spanish tenses. There is only one set of endings and most verbs – even those which are irregular in the present tense – use their infinitive as the root of the conjugation.

To form the future tense of -AR, -ER, and -IR verbs, add the appropriate ending to the infinitive.

Singular       

Plural

1st person    yonosotros -emos
2nd person-ásvosotros-éis
3rd personél
ella
Ud.
ellos
Uds.
-án

Some verbs have irregular future stems, but they still use the same endings as regular verbs. The following table lists verbs with irregular future stems (note that the stem always ends in R, and that these are the exact same as the irregular conditional stems):
