1French The Posh Future Tense This PowerPoint was created by Matthew Vernon, here.
2What is the Posh Future Tense? There’s nothing wrong in using the normal future tense of I am going/ je vais. However, the future posh is a nice way of showing off and will score high in speaking exams and essays.Again, it is all about endings. But this time, no stem is required. The endings are added to the infinitive. I know, interesting, right?
3How do I do it? So, take your infinitive. Parler - to speakNow for the weird bit. You add the corresponding form of the verb ‘to have’, avoir, thus making a new word.j’ai - I haveje parler + aije parlerais - I will have
4Some examples je jouerai le football. I will play football. nous mangerons les légumes.vous aimerez le film.ils nageront.Just three little naughties for you to learn.
5Final note…This future tense is really easy. Just keep your infinitive and for je, tu, il, elle and on, you add on whatever their forms of avoir are.Otherwise you add ons for nous, ez for vous and ont for ils and elles. It’s simple yet really high scoring for tests and orals.
