IR + A expressions In English, instead of using the Future tense [will / shall] we often use the expression “going to . . . “ to indicate what someone will do later in the future. Spanish also uses a similar phrase. Remember that “to go” in Spanish is the verb IR. To show that someone is going to do something , you have to conjugate IR to show who is going to do the action; then follow with “a” and finally add the infinitive of the verb indication what is going to be done.
