Use of the Spanish Verb "ir" to Discuss the Future  

Discussing the Future Using Verb Ir

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 (conjugate), which means "go to". When used to talk about the future the verb 'ir' means "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. ir + a + infinitive
