The usage of future tense
In earlier lessons I heard something like aprenderas and when I checked it at the conjugation section I saw that it is future form of aprender. But when I came to Lesson 2.2, where future tense is covered I encountered another future tense as "ir + a + indefinitive"
So what's the difference between aprenderás and vamos a aprender?
Thanks a bunch!
I'll learn - Aprenderé
I'm going to learn - Voy a aprender
There is a very subtle difference between the future forms in English and it seems the same difference may also apply in Spanish.
It's like the difference between "I will" and "I am going to" in English, except that in Spanish the future tense carries a bit of uncertainty. If you know you are going to do something at a specific time in the future, you use the present tense.
