Conditional Statements

Si tu viens demain, je t’expliquerai tout. (If you come tomorrow, I will explain everything.)

Interactions with Other Tenses

Futur Antérieur

The futur simple is often used in combination with the futur antérieur (future perfect) to indicate that one action will happen before another in the future. For example, “Quand j’aurai fini (futur antérieur) mes devoirs, je partirai (futur simple) au cinéma” (When I have finished my homework, I will go to the cinema).

Conditional

In conditional sentences, you may see the futur simple used in the main clause while the conditional present is used in the subordinate clause. For example, “Si j’ai le temps (conditional present), je travaillerai (futur simple) sur ce projet” (If I have the time, I will work on this project).

Present

In some cases, the futur simple can be used to express future actions, even though the present tense is also an option. The choice between the two often depends on the context and the degree of certainty or formality.

Summary

It’s worth noting that while the futur simple is commonly used, it’s more common in written French, whereas in spoken French, the futur proche (near future) is often used, formed with the verb “aller” + infinitive (e.g., je vais parler – I am going to speak). 
However, mastering the futur simple is essential for a complete understanding of French verb tenses and will greatly enhance your ability to express future actions and possibilities in the language.
