Future perfect simple

If somebody asks you something like the samples below…

  • What will you have achieved by the time you reach forty?
  • How many books will you have read by Christmas?
  • How many English class assignments will I have given you by the end of the term ? 😦

…they are using the future perfect and we’d usually answer this in the following way

  • By the time I reach forty I will have set up my own company.
  • By Christmas I will have read three books.
  • By the end of the term my teacher will have given us tons of English assignments because she is very picky.

 

  • That is: time expression + subject + will + have + past participle

Here’s a fun way to do some language drills.

HOW TO PLAY

  • Pick a partner or ask somebody randomly.
  • Turn the wheel. Say for example you get How many showers (have).
  • Turn the second wheel for time expressions. Say for example you get  ‘in one year’
  • Make a question with these expressions. Example: How many showers will you have had in a year ?
  • Your partner should answer your question.
  • Example: In a year I will have had about ….. showers. (if the partners says he/she has a very low number of showers,  choose another person quickly).

 

In the first wheel you will find expressions related to actions.

Hi! As promised, here is some extra practise for the new future forms we’ve seen this week. That is:

  • future progressive for the prediction of an action in progress
  • future perfect for the prediction of a completed action in the future
  • future perfect progressive for the prediction of an action that will be in progress in the future.

B2 Future forms

Hey! There’s nothing like a video for brushing up on grammar and when it comes to watching something created on Bitable, something like learning grammar really changes into a much more enjoyable experience. I hope you like the video as much as I enjoyed creating it with bitable.com. First watch the video and after do the grammar activity. Good luck and don’t forget that giving feedback doesn’t hurt. 😉
