Now, what is the future tense?
The future tense suggests our actions, aspirations, plans, and the goals we wish to achieve. This is why you need to have a clear understanding of the future tense and its usage.
In this post, I will be telling you the construction of the future tense, along with the syntax and examples for your better understanding.
Let’s look at them.
The future tense is further classified into four parts. They are:
There are several examples for future tenses examples,
So, let’s get started.
The simple future tense is used to indicate any action that will take place in the future. It also indicates some of our plans and possibilities that may become successful.
There is no future form of English verbs, so we will use the simple present or the verb’s base form.
However, to indicate the tense as future, we will be using “Will / shall” in every section of the future tense. This will denote tense as future.
A closer look at the syntax will help you understand the construction better.
Subject + Will / Shall + Verb 1st form + Object
Let’s look at a few examples of the Simple Future tense:
Future continuous tense is used to indicate any action that will happen in the future and will continue to occur in the context of the future.
As I have mentioned earlier, the English verbs don’t have a future form, and thus we use the present form of the verb.
Let’s look at the syntax for better understanding.
Subject + Will / Shall + be + Verb + ing + Object
As you can see, the main verb will take the “ing” form to maintain the continuous state and the “be” verb sits as “be”.
Some examples can be:

Subject + Will / Shall + Have + Past Participle of Verb+ Object / Complement
Some examples of this tense can be:

Lastly, we have future perfect continuous tense. Frankly, this tense has very limited application, and the complicated syntax and explanation make this one of the less popular tenses to use in our day-to-day conversation.
But it still has some usage in the English language.
Let’s look at the syntax along with a few examples to have a clearer idea.
Firstly, much like the name suggests, it is a combination of perfect and continuous tense. Hence, it will carry the characteristics of both future perfect and future continuous tense.
Subject + will / shall + Have + Been + Verb + ing + Object
As you can see, we have “will / shall” to indicate future tense, “Have” to denote the perfect tense, “Been” as the third form of the “Be” verb and present participle or the “ing” form of the main verb to denote the continuous effect.
Some examples can be:
