Futuro do presente
This is the correspondent to Future Will in English. Again, in Portuguese, there is no need to use any auxiliary whatsoever. Therefore, the ending of the conjugated verb defines the verb tense, just as with the verb tenses we've studied before. In Portuguese, it is also possible to say that you are going to do something, by using the verb IR + another verb. However, this lesson focuses only on the WILL future.
WATCH OUT: Although we have two similar ways of expressing the future in indicative tenses, Portuguese holds no differences in meaning as it does in English. The future with the verb IR is more informal and a lot used in spoken language.
SER
be
ESTAR
Be
TER
To have
Eu SEREI ESTAREI TEREI
VocA? SERA? ESTARA? TERA?
Ele SERA? ESTARA? TERA?
Ela SERA? ESTARA? TERA?
A gente SERA? ESTARA? TERA?
Nós SEREMOS ESTAREMOS TEREMOS
VocA?s SERA?O ESTARA?O TERA?O
Eles SERA?O ESTARA?O TERA?O
Elas SERA?O ESTARA?O TERA?O
Remember that SER and ESTAR are main verbs, just like in English, and they are also irregular verbs. Check the spelling of these verbs and you will see they differ from that of their infinitive forms, their roots. Same thing happens with the verb TER.
