In the Spanish language we can refer to a future tense in three different ways that do not involve using the simple future. These expressions of the future are: the verbal periphrasis “ir + a + infinitivo”, “querer + infinitivo”, “pensar + infinitivo” and the present indicative. For students of Spanish, it can be a bit difficult to remember how to use one or the other, so our teacher Irene Cañas has recorded a simple video explaining the use of future expressions in Spanish. Here you can watch it and below you will find a table that summarizes her explanation in the video:
