  • This question may provide some insight for using avenir. It is also valued to describe the research you did when you don't find something. Why not try feeding in the future to Collins for instance.

" Dans l'avenir, j'espère obtenir de bonnes notes à l'école et réussir dans la vie "

Depending on what you want to tell, " à l'avenir " may be more correct.

You can trust me as I'm french ;)

To be more precise ;)

"à l'avenir" has the following connotation: "It hasn't been the case in the past, but from now I will make my best for it to be". = example here: I used to have bad grades, but it is going to change.

"Plus tard" may also be used, it is used towards a time you can't exactly imagine, or at least you haven't reached yet. Example here: I'm not going to school yet, but when it will be the case, I wan't to have some good grades.

Hoping it has been useful :)

    French Language is not a translation service. And by the way, I am French too and does not agree with your sentence in French.

  • Bonjour! En quoi n'êtes-vous pas d'accord avec la phrase ci-dessus? Je crois avoir été assez claire. Par ailleurs, il ne s'agit pas ici de traduction, mais de correction. Vos souhaits quant à l'utilisation de ce site sont donc exaucés, au cas où la question de traduction vous dérangerait. Meilleures salutations.

    In the future se dit "à l'avenir" en Français, "dans l'avenir" n'est pas correct ici."French Language is not a text translation or proof reading service" I think this is clear enough.
