FUTURE PERFECT CONTINUOUS TENSE

Kita dapat gunakan tenses ini untuk menyatakan tindakan-tindakan yang sedang akan terjadi pada waktu tertentu di masa yang akan datang. Beberapa ekspresi waktu yang umum digunakan dalam Future Perfect Continuous:

* By tomorrow / 7 o’clock
* This year / month / week
* Next year / month / week

Bentuk

Subjek + will + have + been + Verb+ing.

Contoh:

* We will have been driving 6 hours by the time we get home.
In the summer Michael will have been trying to find a new job for five months.
* Janet will be very tired when she comes home, because she will have been flying over 24 hours.
* My father and my brother will have been breeding sheep for 22 years tomorrow.

Untuk bentuk negatif kita tambahkan not.

* She won’t have been writing the book for four months by the end of November.

Kalimat-kalimat negatif kedengarannya tidak natural. Kemungkinan karena jawaban terhadap sebuah pertanyaan seperti “Will she have been teaching for 20 years this year?” cukup “No, I don’t think so”.

Perhatikan pola bentuk negatif berikut:

Will + subjek + have + been + verb+ing.
Contoh:

* Will he have been writing the composition for a month by the end of February?

Pertanyaan-pertanyaan yang dimulai dengan “how long” lebih umum:

* How long will you have been learning German this year?
* How long will you have been trying to get your driving license this week? I hope you’ll finally make it!
