Future - el Futuro

Doris Day - Que Sera Sera

The only Spanish sung by Doris Day in this popular song of the 50s is Que sera sera, and Doris immediately translates it, with poetic license, as "Whatever will be, will be."

La canción fue popularizada en la película de 1956, El hombre que sabía demasiado. La película fue dirigida por Alfred Hitchcock y protagonizada por Doris y Jimmy Stewart. James Stewart y Doris Day son marido y mujer de vacaciones en Marruecos junto con su hijo pequeño. Ellos descuben accidentalmente a un complot de asesinato y los conspiradores secuestrar al hijo para evitar que se interfering. El canción Que Sera Sera le importa de la trama.

The song was popularized in the 1956 movie, The Man Who Knew Too Much. The movie was directed by Alfred Hitchcock and starred Doris and Jimmy Stewart. Jimmy Stewart and Doris Day are husband and wife vacationing in Morocco along with their young son. They accidentally stumble on to an assassination plot and the conspirators kidnap the young son to prevent them from interfering. The song Que sera sera becomes integral to the plot.


Remember that in Spanish as in English, one can express the future by using the indicative form of the verb "go" along with an infinitive.

Este verano, voy a ir a Venezuela.

Mañana por la noche, vamos a ver Pelléas et Mélisande de Debussey en el Teatro Real de Madrid.

The Future Endings

The future endings are the same for ar, er, and ir verbs. The future conjugation is formed by adding to the infinitive the endings by adding:

 -é, -ás, -á, -emos, -éis, -án. 

That is it. Eso es todo. Several songs use the Spanish future. Try listening to Asturian singer, Luz Casal, for something romantic, with a flair for the tango.

There are twelve common irregular verbs, but you can look them up.  ¡Basta. 

Note. Oh yes, one more thing.Observe the similarity in conjugation of the preterite and future for -ar verbs that end in -ar.

Hablaron, Hablarán. We spoke, We will speak.

Listen for the  different ending -on and -án.
