GRAMMAR
The Focus of This Lesson Is on the Futuro Semplice Tense of Third Conjugation -ire
Verbs.
Seguir ancora i tuoi consigli.
"I'll follow your advice again."

In order to form the futuro semplice of third conjugation -ire regular verbs, we need to follow
the same procedure we employ for second conjugation verbs. Therefore, we need to drop the
final -e of the infinitive form and add the appropriate endings -, -ai, -, -emo, -ete, and -anno.
For Example:
seguire ("to follow")
Italian

"English"

Io seguir-

"I will follow"

Tu seguir-ai

"You will follow"

Lui/lei seguir-

"He/She/It will follow"

Noi seguir-emo

"We will follow"

Voi seguir-ete

"You will follow"

Loro seguir-anno

"They will follow"

Here are some additional examples.


For Example:
1.

dormire ("to sleep")


Io dormir.
"I will sleep."

2.

uscire ("to go out")


Io uscir.
"I will go out."

3.

dire ("to say")


Io dir.
"I will say."

Certain -ire irregular verbs change the stem when conjugated at futuro semplice:
For Example:
venire ("to come")
Italian

"English"

Io verr-

"I will come"

Tu verr-ai

"You will come"

Lui/lei verr-

"He/She/It will come"

Noi verr-emo

"We will come"

2.
