Future Perfect Continuous Tense


Future Perfect Continuous Tense

Rules:

  • Always use 1st form of the verb
  • Addition of “ing” after the verb.
  • So “wash” becomes “washing”, "clean” becomes “cleaning”
  • Helping verbs of future indefinite tense are (will have been, shall have been)
  • If (he, she, it, you, they, singular or plural noun) is used as the subject of the sentence “will have been” is used as the helping verb.
  • If (I or we) is used as the subject of the sentence “shall have been” is used as the helping verb.
  • You will always find direct or indirect involvement of time in future perfect continuous tense.
  • To mention time we use (since or for)
  • “Since” is used with uncountable time.
  • For example, childhood, morning, evening etc.
