GCSE Latin: Indicative Passive Future


Future Tense (Passive)

Like the future active, the future passive of a Latin verb is translated with the auxillary verb “will,” e.g. she will be carried.

The future passive uses the standard passive endings (-r, -ris, -tur, -mur, -mini, -ntur).

As with the future active, knowledge of conjugations is important for the future passive tense. The 1st/2nd conjugations form their endings quite differently to the 3rd/4th/5th conjugations.
