That's going to be a problem


Aside from the usual "Vas a tener problemas" etc.. What about "Habrás problemas" (heard today in a show) or "Te vendrá problemas" or what about with recaer sobre "to fall upon".

Jeezle, I think you heard "Habrá problemas" and "te vendrán problemas". Another common way is "van a surgir problemas".

There's always: Vas a meterse(te) en un lío.

You're going to wind up in a mess. wink

If you are talking about what will happen to the person. :-) - Delores--Lindsey, JUL 4, 2010
Many of the fellows at work don't know the word lío which I find surprising, but because of that I try not to make it part of daily vocabulary because if they don't know a word I use then they assume that I don't know what I'm talking about. - jeezzle, JUL 4, 2010

Eso va a causar problemas. / Eso será problematico. (are also possibilities)

That's going to be a problem But if you want to stick to that exact phrase, maybe something like 'Eso va a ser un problema'. Referring to some specific thing being the problem.

There's a space between problem and **, if you remove it you'll be there. - jeezzle, JUL 3, 2010
