What will you have done by this time tomorrow?
Which countries will you have visited by this time next year?
Where will you have partied by the end of the weekend?
So many questions, so many possibilities!
We often use the Future Perfect to talk about something that ‘will have’ happened up to a specific point in time.
The most useful way to understanding the Future Perfect is to remember the following 5 components:
1) Future Time Reference 2) Subject 3) ‘Will Have’ 4) Past Participle 5) Object
TIME REFERENCE + SUBJECT + ‘WILL HAVE’ + PAST PARTICPLE + OBJECT
By this time tomorrow Benjamin will have eaten his lunch
By December 2012 London will have hosted the Olympics
This time next year Audrey will have turned 21
Our TIME REFERENCE may also be used at the end of the sentence, after the OBJECT.
Zachary will have studied some grammar… by the end of Tuesday’s lesson.
Mina will have finished her homework… by 9pm this evening.
The SF Giants will have won their seventh World Series… by the year 2040.
Set some of your own personal goals and motivate yourself, today!
