BUT, before we can attain that high and lofty goal, let’s actually learn the future tense verbs first.
The future tense verbs have very similar names to the past and present tense verbs: simple future, future continuous, future perfect, future perfect continuous.
This is a great place to start because it’s really easy. All you do is put “will” in front of a verb to indicate that you will do something in the future.
If you are going to do something in the future that will be going on for a while, try to use this verb tense! To create this tense, use “will be” and the present participle. This will usually end in “ing.”
By using “will have” and the past participle, you can create the future perfect tense. Just like with other perfect tenses, it indicates that something will have already occurred in the future.
To form this verb tense, use “will have been” AND the present participle. This tense refers to an ongoing action at some point in the future.
There we have it! In total, we’ve looked at 12 different verb tenses to help you understand more about grammar as a language and to help you identify parallelism in your own papers. Work hard and in no time you will have a strong grasp on verb tenses.
