When the future is less controlled, and maybe a bit more uncertain, is expressed with the following formula:
kommer til + å + main
verb in infinitive
It might be a bit hard to distinguish these two types of future, so
here you have a series of examples of the latter type:
It will rain tomorrow = Det kommer til å regne i morgen.
You will love this fish. = Du kommer til å elske denne fisken.
You will like the food. = Du kommer til å like maten.
You will learn Norwegian very fast! = Du kommer til å lære
norsk veldig fort!
As you see, in the English translations, we have been using "going
to" for the most controlled future, and "will" for the less controlled
one. This doesn't always hold, but it works as a rule of thumb.
You'll be able to practice the two future constructions in the
summary exam on
the next page. But first, the observant reader must have noted the
following: We have learned the verb "to love", but we still haven't
learned how to say the most basic of all phrases: "I love you"! Ok, here
Note the object form of "deg" (which would have been "du" in its
subject form)... or just learn the phrase for now.
