GRAMMAR:

Using "IR" to express the future

In English there are two ways to say something in the future, "I will eat tomorrow" and "I'm going to eat tomorrow." Similarly in Spanish we can form the future with the verb IR by saying "going to." To do this, use the conjugated form of the verb IR followed by the preposition "a" (to) and then the infinitive of the main verb.

Examples:

 

Yo voy a buscar su carro ahora. I'm going to search your car now.
  Tú vas a llegar muy tarde. You are going to arrive very late.
  Usted va a trabajar con Marta. You're going to work with Marta.
  María va a estar bien, gracias. Maria is going to be fine, thanks.
  Ellas van a bajar del carro. They're going to get out of the car.
