Future Perfect vs. Future Continuous

Advertisements

Future Perfect

We use the future perfect (will have + past participle) to say something that will be finished before a certain time in the future.

  • This tense is frequently used with the time expressions by + day/time or in + time expression
  • by + a time expression = at the latest
  • We form the negative form with won’t have+ past participle
  • We make questions by inverting the subject and will (Will you have + past participle …?)

Future Continuous

We use the future continuous (will + be + verb+ing) to say that an action will be in progress at a certain time in the future.

Let’s compare it with the simple future:

We‘ll have dinner at 8 o’clock (= we will start dinner at 8 o’ clock)

We‘ll be having dinner at 8 o’clock (= we will start dinner before 8 o’clock/ at 8 o’clock we will already have started eating)

  • We sometimes use the future continuous, like the present continuous, to talk about things that are already planned or decided
  • We form the negative with won’t be + verb+ ing
  • We make questions by inverting the subject and will (Will you be + verb+ing…?)
