Grammar - Conjugating - ER Verbs in the Future Tense (Part 3)

This Spanish Difficult Review quiz continues your journey with conjugating ER verbs in the future tense. In this series of conjugating verbs in the present tense, you learned that the verbs, at least most verbs, remain in their base form when conjugated in the future tense. However, not all verbs will remain in their base form as some verbs are irregular in the future tense. This is especially true when it comes to ER verbs. Therefore, this third ER future tense verb quiz will cover some of the irregular verbs, as well as introduce you to a few additional new verbs.
