Future Tense Conjugation of Regular Verbs

The future tense is a verb form that’s used to express what the subject will do or what action or event will occur in the future. The Spanish future tense is equivalent to the English tense formed with the auxiliary word will. 

The formation of the future tense in Spanish is very straightforward. Constructing a conjugation in the future tense doesn't require you to discern between -ar, -er, and -ir verbs. All regular verbs are conjugated the same way in the future tense. Instead of cutting off the last two letters like we’ve done on other conjugations, the future tense of regular verbs is formed by adding the future endings to the infinitive of the verb. The endings for the future tense are as follows: , -ás, , -emos, -éis, -án.

Here is the future tense of the regular verb vivir (to live):

yo viviré I will live
vivirás you will live
vivirá he will live
she will live
you (formal) will live
viviremos we will live
we will live
viviréis you (plural) will live
you (plural) will live
vivirán they will live
they will live
you (formal, plural) will live

Note that in the future tense only the nosotros/nosotras form doesn't have an accent.

Here are some examples of other regular verbs in the future tense:

Yo viviré cerca de la playa. - I will live near the beach.
Tú estudiarás la lección. - You will study the lesson.
¿Dónde trabajará usted? - Where will you (formal) work?
Nosotros iremos a la playa. - We will go to the beach.
María y tú leeréis el periódico. - Mary and you will read the newspaper.
Ellos comerán más tarde con mamá. - They will eat later with mom.
