Let’s practise!

We use futuro perfecto to express an action completed in the future. This is known as the “past” of the future. Look at these examples:


Mañana el avión llegará a las 15:00. 

A las 15:15 el avión ya habrá llegado

El lunes voy a trabajar hasta las 16:00. 

A las 16:05 habré terminado.


¿Futuro compuesto or futuro simple?

Now that you know there are two different future tenses it’s time to learn when to use them both properly. 

Futuro simple o imperfecto Futuro compuesto o perfecto
To indicate the point in time when something happens in the future
To indicate something that has already happened at a point in time in the future
Viajaremos en marzo a Irlanda. La clase empezará a las 09:00. Harás muchas cosas durante tu vida.
En abril ya habremos visitado Irlanda. A las 09:02 la clase ya habrá empezado. A los 80 años habrás hecho muchas cosas.

Now you need to practise, so here you have some practical exercises to keep learning.
