The following lesson is for advanced students. If you are not sure of your English level, take our test!
You can find all this information, plus speaking, writing, vocabulary exercises and more on the ABA English Course Unit 127 – Little Dreams.
Let’s begin by looking at how to form the future perfect.
We use the future perfect to say that something will have finished by a certain time in the future. It’s constructed with the verb “have” in the future, therefore it uses “will have” plus the main verb in the past participle.
I will have been to three continents.
She will have worked at the same company all her life.
Notice that the past participle form of the verb “to be” is “been”.
To form a negative sentence in the future perfect, we simply add the word “not”, therefore the sentences include “will not”, which as a contraction changes to “won’t”.
Let’s see some examples with the negative form:
They won’t have finished the meeting yet.
I won’t have eaten until lunch time.
In questions “will” comes before the subject.
When will she have finished her lessons?
Will you have finished the report by this evening?
And finally, how do we make short answers? Well, to answer in affirmative, you can give the short answer “Yes, I will” and to answer in the negative you can say “No, I won’t”.
