    Future Continuous



    IMPORTANT No Future in Time Clauses

    Like all future forms, the Future Continuous cannot be used in clauses beginning with "when", "while", "before", "after", "by the time", "as soon as", "if" and "unless". In this lesson, all verbs in Time Clauses are italicized.

    EXAMPLES:

    While I am finishing my homework, she is going to make dinner. Correct

    While I will be finishing my homework, she is going to make dinner. Not Correct


    FORM Future Continuous

    [WILL BE] [VERB ing]

    EXAMPLE:

    When your plane arrives tonight, I will be waiting for you.


    [AM / IS / ARE] [GOING TO] [VERBing]

    EXAMPLE:

    When your plane arrives tonight, I am going to be waiting for you.

    NOTE: It is possible to use either "will" or "going to" to create the Future Continuous with little or no difference in meaning.


    USE 1 Interrupted Action in the Future

    Use the Future Continuous to indicate that a longer action in the future will be interrupted. The interruption is usually an action in the Simple Future. Remember this can be a real interruption or just an interruption in time.

    EXAMPLES:

    I will be watching TV when she arrives tonight.

    I will be waiting for you when your bus arrives.

    While I am working, Steve will make dinner. (NOTICE "am working" because of "while.")

    I am going to be staying at the Madison Hotel, if anything happens and you need to contact me.

    He will be studying at the library tonight, so he will not see Jennifer when she arrives.

    NOTE: No future tenses can be used in Time Clauses therefore you must say "While I am working... ." See the warning at the top of the page.


    USE 2 Specific Time as an Interruption

    In USE 1, described above, the Future Continuous is interrupted by an action in the Simple Future. However, you can also use a specific time as an interruption.

    EXAMPLES:

    Tonight at 6 p.m., I am going to be eating dinner.

    At midnight tonight, we will still be driving through the desert.


    IMPORTANT

    In the Simple Future a specific time is used to show the time an action will begin. In the Future Continuous, a specific time only interrupts the action.

    EXAMPLES:

    Tonight at 6 p.m., I am going to eat dinner.
    I am going to start eating at 6 p.m.

    Tonight at 6 p.m., I am going to be eating dinner.
    I am going to start earlier and I will be in the process of eating dinner at 6 p.m. .


    USE 3 Parallel Actions

    When you use the Future Continuous with two actions in the same sentence, it expresses the idea that both actions will be happening at the same time. These are Parallel Actions.

    EXAMPLES:

    I am going to be studying while he is making dinner.

    While Ellen is reading, Tim will be watching television.

    Tonight, they will be eating dinner, discussing their plans, and having a good time.


    USE 4 Atmosphere

    In English we often use a series of Parallel Actions to describe atmosphere in the future.



    EXAMPLE:

    When I arrive at the party everybody is going to be celebrating. Some will be dancing. Others are going to be talking. A few people will be eating pizza and several people are going to be drinking beer. They always do the same thing.


    IMPORTANT Non-Continuous Verbs / Mixed Verbs

    It is important to remember that Non-Continuous Verbs cannot be used in any "continuous" tenses. Also, certain "non-continuous" meanings for Mixed Verbs cannot be used in "continuous" tenses. To express the idea of Future Continuous with these verbs, you must use Simple Future.

    EXAMPLES:
    Jane will be being at my house when you arrive. Not Correct

    Jane will be at my house when you arrive. Correct



    ACTIVE / PASSIVE FORMS Future Continuous



    EXAMPLES:



    At 8:00 PM tonight, John will be washing the dog. ACTIVE



    At 8:00 PM tonight, the dog will be being washed by John. PASSIVE



    NOTE: Passive forms of the Future Continuous are not common

    Future Perfect ContinuousIMPORTANT No Future in Time Clauses

    Like all future forms, the Future Perfect Continuous cannot be used in clauses beginning with "when," "while," "before," "after," "by the time," "as soon as," "until," "if" and "unless". In this lesson, all verbs in Time Clauses are italicized.

    EXAMPLES:


    I won't tell the student the answer until he has been working on the math problem for more than an hour. Correct

    I won't tell the student the answer until he will have been working on the math problem for more than an hour.
    Not Correct

    FORM Future Perfect Continuous

    [WILL HAVE BEEN] [ VERB ing ]

    EXAMPLE:


    I will have been waiting for two hours when her plane finally arrives.


    [AM / IS / ARE] [GOING TO HAVE BEEN] [ VERB ing ]

    EXAMPLE:

    I am going to have been waiting for two hours when her plane finally arrives.

    NOTE: It is possible to use either "will" or "going to" to create the Future Perfect Continuous with little or no difference in meaning.


    USE 1 Duration Before Something in the Future



    We use the Future Perfect Continuous to show that something will continue up until a particular event or time in the future. "For five minutes," "for two weeks" and "since Friday" are all durations which can be used with the Future Perfect Continuous. Notice that this is related to the Present Perfect Continuous and the Past Perfect Continuous, however the duration stops in the future.

    EXAMPLES:

    They will have been talking for over an hour by the time Tony arrives.

    She is going to have been working at that company for three years when it finally closes.

    James will have been teaching at the University for more than a year by the time he leaves for Asia.


    USE 2 Cause of Something in the Future

    Using the Future Perfect Continuous before another action in the future is a good way to show cause and effect.

    EXAMPLES:


    Jason will be tired when he gets home because he will have been jogging for over an hour.

    Claudia's English will be perfect when she returns to Germany because she is going to have been studying English in the United States for over two years.


    IMPORTANT

    If you do not include a duration such as "for five minutes," "for two weeks" or "since Friday", many English speakers choose to use the Future Continuous. There is also a difference in meaning. Compare the examples below.

    EXAMPLES:

    I will be reading when my roommate returns.
    The reading will be interrupted.

    I will have been reading for an hour when my roommate returns.
    The reading will stop just before my roommate returns.


    ACTIVE / PASSIVE Future Perfect Continuous

    EXAMPLES:


    The famous artist will have been painting the mural for over six months by the time it is finished. ACTIVE

    The mural will have been being painted by the famous artist for over six months by the time it is finished.
    PASSIVE

    NOTE: Passive forms of the Past Perfect Continuous are not common
