The Near Future

Can you translate the near future sentences below? Have a go in your head then run your cursor over each phrase to check:

We use the near future to talk about things which will almost definitely happen in the future.

Construction: aller + infinitive

Je vais manger - I am going to eat

So all you really need to know is the conjugation of 'aller' in the present. Then chuck on any infinitive.

Tu vas

Il / elle / on va

Nous allons

Vous allez

Ils / elles vont 

 + manger, aller, regarder, boire etc....

They (m) are going to swim
