• How to Use the Future Perfect in English (video and exercise)

    This is the first of two videos/exercises on advanced future forms in English. The future perfect appears complicated when someone gives you the definition of it: The future perfect is used to express an idea that something will be completed or finished before a specific time in the future.

    In the video below, Teauna draws a timeline, and uses it to illustrate future perfect in a few sentences.

    Watch the video, and then try the exercises.

    Create sentences in the future perfect using the prompts below. Write your answers in comments and we will correct them.
