There are two main ways in which the future tense is used in Spanish:
It indicates future time, the same as in English.
Mañana saldremos para Madrid. Tomorrow we will leave for Madrid.
El lunes iré al hospital. I'll go to the hospital on Monday.
The future tense is also used to indicate conjecture or probability in the present time. In
English, expressions such as "probably", "must", "I/you think" are usually used rather than
the future tense.
The periphrastic future: Ir a + the infinitive. A present tense form of the verb ir (to go) plus
the preposition a plus an infinitive is often used as a substitute for the future tense in Spanish.
The same phenomenon also occurs in English:
¿Vas a estudiar mañana? Are you going to study tomorrow?
