V. Expressing Future Actions

Class notes:

*Aside from using the future tense, one could also use ‘ir + a + infinitive’ to talk about the future.

The present conjugations of the verb ‘ir’ are:

voy vamos

vas vais

va van

Ex:

Voy a ser profesora.
(I am going to be a profesor/teacher)


Vamos a ir a la escuela mañana.
(We are going to go to school tomorrow.)

*Sometimes the present tense is used with a time reference to express future actions.

Ex:

Van dentro de poco. (They will go in a little while.)

La ceremonia termina a las 5:00, ¿verdad?

(The ceremony ends/finishes at 5:00, right?)
