English: Let’s see two verbs that we use very frequently in Spanish: ‘to go’ and ‘to give’.

English: Let’s start with the conjugation of the verb ‘to go’.
Spanish: Empecemos con la conjugación del verbo ‘ir’.
English: I go, you go, he, she, you goes, we go, you go, they, they, you go.

English: Let’s see the next sentence:
Spanish: Veamos la siguiente frase:
English: “I go to my friend’s house”.
Spanish: “Voy a casa de mi amigo”.
English: It’s present tense, true? Well I can change the sentence to the future tense, simply by putting an expression of future tense:
Spanish: Es el tiempo presente, ¿verdad? Pues puedo cambiar la frase al tiempo futuro, simplemente poniendo una expresión de tiempo futuro:
English: “I am going to my friend’s house next Sunday”. It’s future.
Spanish: “Voy a casa de mi amigo el próximo domingo”. Es futuro.
English: Let’s see another example:
Spanish: Veamos otro ejemplo:
English: “Every day the kids go to play in the park”. It’s present.
Spanish: “Cada día los niños van a jugar en el parque”. Es presente.
English: “The kids are going to play in the park tomorrow”. It’s future, because we use the time expression ‘mañana’.
Spanish: “Los niños van a jugar en el parque mañana”. Es futuro, porque usamos la expresión de tiempo ‘mañana’.
