The Spanish future indicative tense is used when talking about what is going to happen at some time in the future. It can also be used to speak about possible things that may happen in, or predications about, the future.

Yo hablaré. I will speak. I shall speak.

The following charts show the verb “endings” for all regular verbs in the Future Indicative Tense.

Remember: these verb charts are only a tool to use while one is learning the language. In other words, one must eventually forget the verb chart and it must become second nature.

NOTE: The following endings are added to the infinitive. Do not drop the original endings.

Personal Pronoun Ending Example (hablar)
Yo hablaré
Tu -ás hablarás
El/Ella hablará
Nosotros -emos hablaremos
Vosotros -éis hablaréis
Ellos/Ellas -án hablarán
Personal Pronoun Ending Example (compartir)
Yo compartiré
Tu -ás compartirás
El/Ella compartirá
Nosotros -emos compartiremos
Vosotros -éis compartiréis
Ellos/Ellas -án compartirán
Personal Pronoun Ending Example (comer)
Yo comeré
Tu -ás comerás
El/Ella comerá
Nosotros -emos comeremos
Vosotros -éis comeréis
Ellos/Ellas -án comerán

The Future Indicative Tense endings are added to the end of the entire infinitive. The -ar, -er, and -ar are not dropped. The ending identifies:

1) the tense - when the action of the verb is taking place; and
2) the person - who is performing the action of the verb.
