How To Say I Wonder In Spanish In the Present Using the Future Tense

Let’s learn how to say I wonder in Spanish in the present using the future tense. You may want to pay very close attention to this lesson because this is a topic that seems to trouble even advanced learners of the Spanish language.

Spanish doesn’t have a verb for “to wonder.” Spanish does have a verb called “preguntarse” or
to ask one’s self. But “me pregunto” or “I ask myself” isn’t exactly the same as “I wonder.”

So how does a native Spanish speaker say:

1. I wonder what time it is.
2. I wonder what’s her name.
3. I wonder who is coming to the party.
4. I wonder what they are eating.
5. I wonder who is winning the game.

In Spanish, in order “to wonder” in the PRESENT you ASK questions using the FUTURE TENSE.

Let me give you some examples so that you understand this challenging grammar topic.

1. Qué hora será?
(I wonder what time it is?)

2. Cómo se llamará ella?
(I wonder what’s her name?)

3. Quién vendrá a la fiesta?
(I wonder who is coming to the party?)

4. Qué comerán ellos?
(I wonder what they are eating?)

5. Quién ganará el partido?
I wonder who is winning the game?

That’s how you “wonder” in the PRESENT in Spanish. You just ASK yourself questions using the FUTURE TENSE. This concludes today’s online Spanish grammar lesson. In my next online grammar lesson, I am going to share with you how to “wonder” about something in the PAST.
