Formationshall /will + have + Past Participle

                  e.g.  We will(shall) have finished doing these exercises by 3 o’clock. Will you have finished the translation of the text too? – No, we won’t have finished.

Future Perfect is used:

e.g. The mailman will have delivered all the newspapers by 8 o'clock.


Formationshall /will + have been + Present Participle

e.g.  Lora is so slow! By 5 o’clock she will have been hovering the flat for 3 hours! – Will she have been hovering the flat for 6 hours when the Blacks come? – No, she won’t have been hovering it for so long because I will help her as soon as I’m free.

Future Perfect Continuous is used:

2.  To emphasize the duration of an action up to a certain time in the future.

e.g. By the end of next month, Mrs. Graham will have been teaching for twenty years.

3.  Future Perfect and Future Perfect Continuous are used with the following time expressions:

 before            by       by then           by the time    until/till         


·  Until/till are only used in negative sentences.

a) She will have finished the report by tomorrow. (NOT: ... till tomorrow.)

                b) She won't have completed the report until/ till 5 o'clock.

·  After the time expressions by the time, until, before, Present Simple is used because these expressions introduce time clauses. Future Perfect and Future Perfect Continuous may come either before or after the time clause.

· Study the following examples:

a)  I won't have finished cleaning the house until you come back.

b)  By the time they reach York, they will have been travelling for four hours.
