  • Let's start a checkup for the future perfect continuous tense.

  • Take a look at the board.

  • The first sentence says,

  • 'By 10 p.m., I _blank_ that game for three hours.'

  • I'm looking to use the verb 'play'.

  • Remember, in this tense, we need to have 'subject' + 'will have been' and then 'verb +ing'.

  • So 'By 10 p.m., I will have been playing …'

  • Again, we need 'verb +ing'.

  • '… I will have been playing that game for three hours.

  • The next sentence says,

  • 'When she gets here, he _blank_ dinner for an hour.'

  • Try to use the verb 'cook'.

  • Again, no matter what the subject, it doesn't change.

  • 'When she gets here, he will have been cooking …'

  • 'When she gets here, he will have been cooking dinner for an hour.'

  • Now, find the mistake in the next sentence.

  • 'Steve and Jan will not have be waiting for a year when it arrives.'

  • Here, we have a negative form, 'they will not have'.

  • Then we need 'been'.

  • 'They will not have been …'

  • And then the 'verb +ing' is here so that's correct.

  • 'Steve and Jan will not have been waiting for a year when it arrives.'

  • The last sentence says,

  • 'It will have been work for 10 years on January 15th.'

  • So maybe here I'm talking about a computer or a TV.

  • Maybe some kind of machine.

  • 'it' 'It will have been …'

  • I see the mistake here.

  • We need 'verb +ing'.

  • 'It will have been working for 10 years on January 15th.

  • Great job, everybody.
