How to Conjugate the Verb Volver in Indicative Tense

We use the indicative tense to talk about habits, facts, and descriptions. This is the most common mood in the Spanish language, so learning the indicative forms of volver is important.

Indicative Present

With the indicative present tense, we can describe events that take place in the current time. Because the indicative mood is used to state facts, this tense has to be used with habitual actions that one can predict.

For example, you can say, “Ellos siempre vuelven del trabajo con algo de comer” which means, “They always return from work with something to eat.”

How to Conjugate Volver in Subjunctive Tense

In English, the subjunctive tense isn’t used because there are phrases and words you can use to convey subjective ideas. In Spanish, however, the subjunctive tense is necessary to express doubt, wish, or hope. It helps us make theories or talk about uncertain events. We’ll go over these subjunctive tenses: present subjunctive, future subjunctive, and imperfect subjunctive

Present Subjunctive

The present subjunctive can help you express feelings like hope, wish, and doubt or state an intention. The present subjunctive conjugations of volver help us talk about how we feel about someone’s return. This tense can also be used to speculate about what would happen if someone returns. For example, you can say, “Cuando ella vuelva con el dinero, dejaré de sentirme nerviosa,” which means, “When she returns with the money, I will stop feeling nervous.”

Future Subjunctive

We use the future subjunctive to discuss what could possibly happen in the future. Because this is a subjunctive mood, there is no certainty in the message conveyed in this tense.

For example, you can say, “Volvieres a tu ciudad natal solo si fuese necesario,” which means, “You will return to your home city only if necessary.”
