33. Portuguese Future Tense (Futuro do Presente)
The futuro do presente is the simple future tense, which is expressed by will + an infinitive in English. All verbs add these endings to the infinitive (do NOT remove the last two letters like you did for present, preterite and imperfect):
Notice that fazer changes to far before adding these endings.
Ela fará a lição. She will make the lesson.
Vocês dirigirão até sua casa? Will you drive to your house (or home)?
Nós deixaremos ele ir. We will let him go.
In everyday speech, the future tense is not used. Instead, in Brazil we use the form ir (to go) + infinitive of the verb. See the differences below:
Ela vai fazer a lição. She will make the
Vocês vão dirigir até sua casa? Will you drive to your house (or home)?
Nós vamos deixar ele (or deixá-lo) ir. We will let him go.
