Future actions.
Mañana iré a casa de mis abuelos / I’ll go to my grandparents’ house tomorrow.
Supposition or speculation.
¿Qué buscará ese policía?  / I wonder what that policeman is looking for.



Future in Spanish is often replaced by the present or a verb phrase (present of ir + a + infinitive). This last option is widely used when the speaker has planned the future action:

Mañana voy a casa de mis abuelos  / Mañana voy a ir a casa de mis abuelos.


Tomorrow I’m going to my grandparents’ house.
