In this Spanish Difficult Review quiz you will be introduced to conjugating verbs in the future tense. If you have been taking each series of quizzes, i.e., Spanish Easy Review, Spanish Medium Review and Spanish Difficult Review, you will recall that in the Spanish Easy Review quiz series you learned how to conjugate verbs in the present tense. This refers to actions that are occurring at that very moment.
In the Spanish Medium Review quiz series you learned how to conjugate verbs in the past tense. This refers to actions that have occurred in the past.
As not every action takes place either in the present or in the past, here in the Spanish Difficult Review quiz series you will be learning how to conjugate verbs in the future tense. This refers to actions that will occur at some point in time in the future.
Spanish actually has several other verb tenses but the main focus in the Spanish Difficult Review quiz series is to learn the future tense. For those looking forward to continuing on with their Spanish education, please be aware that there is more to learn when it comes to verbs. However, right now let’s just focus on the future or future tense. In addition, for this quiz and for the following two quizzes after it, you will be focusing solely on AR verbs.
If you remember, in the present tense, the verb endings for AR verbs are: o, as, a, amos, áis, an. The past tense verb endings are: é, aste, ó, amos, asteis, aron. These ending are added onto the base form of the verb after the AR ending has been dropped off. Now let’s look at the verb endings for the future tense.
The future tense verb endings are: é, ás, á, emos, éis, án. There are a lot of accent marks involved. There is another thing that is very important to remember when it comes to the future tense verbs and that is that you DO NOT drop the AR ending off of the base form of the verb before adding the endings. Rather, the future tense verb endings are added to the base form of the verb. Let’s look at the verb 'hablar' as it would appear in the present, the past and the future tenses.
In translating the future tense of hablar you have: I will speak, you will speak [singular familiar], he/she/you [singular formal]/it will speak, we will speak, you will speak [plural familiar] and they/you [plural formal] will speak.
Since you have had quite a bit of experience with conjugating many verbs, neither this quiz nor the other quizzes that will follow will lay out how each verb is conjugated in the present tense. Therefore, to complete the quiz, you will need to rely upon all that you have learned with each verb that you have already been given. There will be a few new verbs added in the next few AR verb quizzes but only those verbs will be conjugated for you if they are irregular verbs. Otherwise, the rules apply to their conjugation as well.
If you feel like you need to have a refresher on conjugating AR verbs then please do take the time now to look back at the corresponding quizzes in both the Spanish Easy Quiz review series, as well as the Spanish Medium Review quiz series. Then, when you are ready, come back to this first AR, future tense verb quiz. There will be ten sentences with each sentence containing a base form verb that will be shown in all capitalized letters. Your task will be to find the future tense form of that verb. You will need to pay attention to what the pronoun is to get the correct form of the verb.
