A course at Memrise.com says the future tense conjugation of 'decir' is as follows:

Yo diré

Tú dirás

Él dirá

Nosotros diremos

Ellos dirán

However, the audio that goes along with the course speaks:

Yo deciré

Tú decirás

Él decirá

Nosotros deciremos

Ellos decirán

Someone help me! Which is the proper conjugation?

Every question about proper verb conjugations can be answered visiting the RAE web and looking up the infinitive ("decir"). Press the blue "conjugar" button and voilá:

yo                     diré
tú / vos               dirás
usted / él, ella       dirá
nosotros, nosotras     diremos
vosotros, vosotras     diréis
ustedes / ellos, ellas dirán

The "deciré" form would be the conjugation were the verb a regular one, but it is not.

  • Thank you. The audio within the Memrise course sounds like it uses native speakers. I wouldn't expect a native speaker to intentionally record his or her voice speaking an improper conjugation! This is why I was so confused. – Rock Anthony Johnson Jan 19 '17 at 15:34

    @RockAnthonyJohnson then it looks like you found a troll (they are everywhere). Maybe you can flag the voice record as inaccurate. – Charlie Jan 19 '17 at 15:42
