This Duolingo exercise is a Spanish sentence written in the present tense. But even so, we (students) might second guess this exercise by wondering if there is a way to use the future tense to create an English solution to this Duolingo exercise.
English simple future:
The girl will not start classes today.
There are two ways to form the future tense in Spanish: the informal future (ir + a + infinitive) and the simple future (el futuro simple)
― La chica no empezará las clases hoy. (the simple future)
― La chica no va a empezar las clases hoy. (the informal future)
The Spanish simple future is used to talk about what will or shall happen. And besides this, it is also used to express the possibility of what someone might or may be doing in the present.
But the question at hand is actually about the English sentence. Our question that I am answering in this post is can the English simple future tense be used to express the possibility of what someone might or may be doing in the present?
After studying this article, it appears to me that the answer depends on whether an additional clause is added.
I think that it will...
I think that she will...
I think that he will...
She frustrates la mierda out of me! What's the point of saying something if you mumble over the most important word? What is sounds like she says is the EXACT OPPOSITE of what she's supposed to say! I have a feeling that the computer is putting together the words, and whatever interval they have set is supposed to make her sound like a native speaker, but she literally skips words. Everytime I hear her voice, I get tense!
