We use the near future tense to talk about things which are definitely going to happen. But, in French, how do we use verbs in the near future tense? Quite simply, we use the present form of the verb “aller” (to go) together with the infinitive of the verb we are using (to watch, to make, to bring etc.). Sounds complicated? It isn’t really and a bit of practice will soon have you using the near future tense in French as if you were born to it.
