Grammar Advanced Future perfect

Future perfect

Introduction

The future perfect is used to talk about something which will, or will not, be completed by a time in the future.

For example:
As with the future simple, we can use "shall" in place of "will" for the subjects "I" and "we": it is more formal and is not common in everyday speech.

Form


"will" / "won't have" + past participle of the main verb.

For example:

I
You
He / She / It
We
They
will have

will not have
won't have
completed the novel before the end of the year.

Will I
you
he / she / it
we
they
have completed the novel before the end of the year?
