Common ways of expressing the future

11/19
Recursos

Existen cuatro maneras de formular oraciones e ideas en futuro. Vamos a revisar cada una de ellas y practicarla con ejercicios.

1. Futuro empleando will

Podemos usar will de varias maneras, todas muy claras. La primera es para realizar predicciones. Eventos a futuro de los que no estamos seguros, solo los predecimos.

  • Humans will colonize Mars in 30 years / Los humanos colonizar谩n Marte en 30 a帽os

Para efectuar promesas. Hechos que haremos en un futuro.

  • I鈥檒l pay you tomorrow / Te pagar茅 ma帽ana.

Para ideas espont谩neas. Acciones no planeadas que surgen de un momento a otro.

  • Hold on. I鈥檒l open the door / Espera. Abrir茅 la puerta.

Para horas en concreto. Eventos que suceder谩n en un momento en espec铆fico.

  • The movie will start at 7:00 pm / La pel铆cula comenzar谩 a las 19:00 horas.

2. Futuro con to be + going to

Esta expresi贸n es muy popular para expresar situaciones en futuro. Veamos c贸mo las podemos usar:

Para expresar una intenci贸n. Algo que consideras hacer.

  • I鈥檓 going to take the bus today / Hoy voy a tomar el autob煤s.

Para hacer una predicci贸n basada en una evidencia. Esta es una predicci贸n mucho m谩s seguro de la que har铆amos con will.

  • Look at the sky. It鈥檚 going to rain / Mira el cielo. Va a llover.

Para hablar de planes anticipados. Eventos que planeas a largo plazo en un momento determinado.

  • My son is going to start college next summer / Mi hijo va a empezar la universidad el pr贸ximo verano.

Futuro con presente continuo

Lo usamos para hablar de planes s贸lidos que estamos seguros que van a suceder o los vamos a hacer. Por ejemplo:

  • I鈥檓 having some drinks with Jack after the meeting / Voy a tomar unas copas con Jack despu茅s de la reuni贸n
  • I鈥檓 traveling to Miami in a couple of weeks / Voy a viajar a Miami en un par de semanas.
  • He鈥檚 picking me up after class / Me recoger谩 despu茅s de la clase.

Como puedes observar, lo que le da la expresi贸n de futuro a la oraci贸n es el contexto. Si solamente dices 鈥I鈥檓 having some drinks鈥 se entiende que est谩s bebiendo en ese momento; sin embargo, al agregar with Jack after the meeting ya das a entender que lo har谩s a futuro.

3. Futuro con presente simple

Usamos el pasado simple para referirnos a eventos de los que estamos seguros que van a ocurrir, pero adem谩s que est谩n programados. Es decir, que est谩n en una agenda o calendario.

  • The plane departs at 6:50 am from Gate 3 / El avi贸n sale a las 6:50 am desde la puerta 3.
  • My class starts in one hour / Mi clase comienza en una hora.
  • I have a doctor鈥檚 appointment next Monday / Tengo una cita con el m茅dico el pr贸ximo lunes.
  • Christmas falls on a Friday this year / La Navidad cae en viernes este a帽o.

4. Futuro con to be + about to

Usamos esta combinaci贸n cuando un evento va a ocurrir de manera inmediata con mucha seguridad. About to se traduce como a punto.

  • I鈥檓 about to go, I鈥檓 sorry! / 隆Estoy a punto de irme, lo siento!
  • She鈥檚 about to finish class / Ella est谩 a punto de terminar la clase.
  • We are about to send you the email / Estamos a punto de enviarle el correo electr贸nico.

Todas estas formas para referirnos al futuro las usaremos dependiendo de la intenci贸n que tengamos al comunicar, ya que transmitiremos ideas distintas dependiendo de cada una.

Ejercicio

隆Genial! Hemos aprendido muchas formas de expresar el futuro. Algunas nos sorprendieron bastante (presente continuo y simple, una locura). Ahora vamos a identificar cu谩l tipo de futuro est谩 presente en las siguientes oraciones:

  • She鈥檚 meeting the boss at 5 pm / Ella se va a reunir con el jefe a las 5 de la tarde.
  • I鈥檓 about to loose my job / Estoy a punto de perder mi trabajo.
  • Wait, I鈥檒l answer my phone / Espera, voy a contestar mi tel茅fono.
  • We are going to travel next semester/ Vamos a viajar el pr贸ximo semestre.
  • The train arrives in one hour / El tren llega en una hora.

Respuestas:

  1. Present continuos. Se trata de un acuerdo con fecha.
  2. About to. Se trata de un futuro inmediato.
  3. Will. Se trata de una decisi贸n espont谩nea.
  4. Going to. Se trata de un plan.
  5. Presente simple. Se trata de un evento programado.
