Future Perfect Continuous

Future perfect continuous

Время Future Perfect Continuous (Будущее совершенное длительное) указывает на действие, которое начнется и будет продолжаться в течение какого-то времени в будущем. Акцент делается не только на результат, но и на временной промежуток, в который разворачивается действие. Это время достаточно редко используется в письменной речи, а в устной – практически никогда.

В предложении, где используется Future Perfect Continuous, обязательно нужно указывать период, в течение которого совершается действие. Это можно сделать с помощью сочетания предлогов by…for:

  • By September she will have been working here for a year. – В сентябре будет год, как она работает здесь. Дословно: К сентябрю она будет работать здесь год.
  • By next week he will not be living here for six months. – На следующей неделе будет шесть месяцев, как он не живет здесь. Дословно: К следующей неделе он не будет жить здесь шесть месяцев.

Также период можно обозначить с помощью выражений

  • by that time - к тому времени (By that time we will have been dating for five months – К тому времени мы будем встречаться пять месяцев)
  • before - прежде чем (She will have been studying Spanish for half a year before she goes to Argentina – Она будет изучать испанский полгода, прежде чем уедет в Аргентину)
  • when – когда (He will have been staying here for a month when she comes – Он будет находиться тут месяц, когда она приедет)

и др.
