How to use the future perfect continuous

Do you have a minute to spare to learn some English? Let Tom tell you the truth about the future perfect continuous tense. Give us 60 seconds and we'll give you the English!

ቨዲዮውን ተመልክተው ክንውኑን ይፈፅሙ

ፅሁፍ አሳይ ፅሁፍ ደብቅ

Hi, I'm Tom and today I'm going to show you how to use the future perfect continuous.

When we use the future perfect continuous, we imagine ourselves at a point in the future and we then talk about a continuing action which leads to this point.

Let's practise. At the start of the next scene, I will have been eating noodles for five minutes.

See? It's nearly finished!

We make this tense using subject + will have been + (verb)ing.

For example: At lunchtime, I will have been working for four hours.

And we can also use won't to make the tense negative.
