Do you know these words? There are future time markers, which basically means that we use them when talking about the future in Spanish. Have a look at these few examples:


después = luego = más tarde    (later)

Hoy es lunes, mañana es martes y pasado mañana es miércoles. 

próximo(a) = que viene (next)

la próxima semana = la semana que viene (next week)

el próximo lunes = el lunes que viene (next Monday)

en / dentro de + numeral + horas / días / semanas… (in + quantity + hours / days / weeks…)

El examen empieza en 2 horas = El examen empieza dentro de 2 horas.

It’s time to practice these future markers with a few exercises:  


Presente de indicativo (A1)
