How to Conjugate the Spanish Verb Seguir in Indicative Tense

In Spanish, we use the indicative tense to make statements about the past, present, and future. With this mood, we can talk about facts and habits, or give descriptions. This is the most common tense in the Spanish language and learning to conjugate seguir in it can help you express yourself easily. We’ll study the following indicative tenses: indicative present, indicative future, indicative preterite, indicative imperfect, and indicative conditional.

Indicative Present

The indicative present is used when talking about events happening in the current time. Since the indicative mood is used to make statements, you have to use the verb to express something true. You can use the indicative present conjugation of seguir to explain who or what you are following at the moment. For example, you can say “Usted sigue al guía del tour” which means, “You follow the tour guide.” 

Here’s the seguir conjugation chart for the indicative present tense:

Indicative Future

With the indicative future tense, you can point out events that will happen later. Remember that, since you are using the indicative mood, your sentence needs to be stating a fact rather than just the intention to complete an action at certain times in the future. The verb seguir can be conjugated in this tense to indicate who or what you will follow. For example, you can say “Vosotros seguiréis el río hasta ver una iglesia” which means, “You will follow the river until you see a church.”

For example, you can say “Ellos hubieron seguido a su líder hasta una cueva antes del terremoto” which means, “They had followed their leader to a cave before the earthquake.” Keep in mind that this tense is rarely used in modern Spanish, but can be useful to understand old texts and legal documents.

How to Conjugate Seguir in Subjunctive Tense

The English language doesn’t have a specific subjunctive form because there are words and phrases that can convey subjective ideas. In Spanish, however, we need the subjunctive mood to express uncertainty. With this mood, you can talk about feelings, wishes, or hopes as well as hypothetical scenarios. We’ll cover these subjunctive tenses: present subjunctive, future subjunctive, and imperfect subjunctive.

Present Subjunctive

You can use the present subjunctive tense to express how you feel about the present or to state an intention. This tense helps us talk about things we wish, doubt, or hope still happen in the present. With seguir, you can describe how you feel about someone or something you follow. For example, you can say “Espero que ella siga el mapa que dibujé” which means, “I hope she follows the map I drew.”

Future Subjunctive

We use the future subjunctive to talk about uncertain events at a later time. You can use seguir in this tense to create a theory about who or what you will follow, and what would happen as a consequence.

Imperfect Subjunctive

The imperfect subjunctive tense allows us to describe what the past could have been like. It can also be used to talk about what the future could be under special conditions.
