Tener future tense, as with so many of the other tenses for this verb, is extremely irregular. As you will see from the formation of each conjugation, tener changes the ending ‘e’ for a ‘d’ whereas the regular conjugation for ‘-er‘ verbs would remain unchanged.
Although tener future tense is not too difficult to learn in itself, remembering to change the ‘e’ to a ‘d’ when used in conversation is easily forgotten…practice makes perfect they say! However, remembering things like this can be made a lot easier if you regularly use a verb training tool called the Verbarrator. Learn more here.
