Future Tense - Can someone explain the future tense in Spanish and tell me how to conjugate -ar, -er, and -ir verbs in it. I figure it is time taht I learned a new tense and learned how to use new things and this is just one thing that I do not know. I know that I am probably asking a lot, but I would greatly appreciate it. :D

- Well, the future tense is actually rather easy to conjugate, you use the same endings for all 3 types of verbs. As for its function, it's used in the same way you would use 'will' or 'shall' in English. I.e. I will go.

You take the infinitive, and add the endings.
é emos
ás éis
á án

So,
Yo hablaré. - I will speak.
Tú comerás. - You will eat.
Ella dormirá. - She will sleep.
Nosotros saltaremos. - We will jump.
Vosotros aprenderáis. - You all will learn.
Ellos sentirán. - They will feel.

There are a number of irregular words, which don't use the infinitive, but a special stem instead.
Ex.
Querer: querr- Querré ir. I will want to go.
Decir: dir- Me dirá la verdad. He/she will tell me the truth.
Tener: tendr- Tendremos que ir la proxima semana. We will have to go next week.
Hacer: har-
Salir: saldr-
Venir: vendr-
Saber: sabr-
Poder: podr-
Poner: pondr-
Valer: valdr-
Caber: cabr-
Those are some of the more common ones.
I hope that helps. :)

De hecho, la terminación para el pronombre vosotros es -éis: vosotros aprendereréis.
Para ustedes, la terminación es -án.
