Unit 24. Will be doing and will have done.

Unit 24; Part A

galka.jpgStudy this example situation:

Unit 24; Part B

galka.jpgI will be doing something (future continuous) = I will be in the middle of doing it:

    This time next week I'll be on holiday. I'll be lying on the beach or swimming in the sea.
    You have no chance of getting the job. You'll be wasting your time if you apply for it.

Compare will be (do)ing and will (do)
    Don't phone between 7 and 8. We'll be having dinner.
    Let's wait for Liz to arrive and then we'll have dinner.

Compare will be -ing with other continuous forms:
•     At 10 o'clock yesterday, Sally was in her office. She was working (past)
      It's 10 o'clock now. She is in her office. She is working
      At 10 o'clock tomorrow, she will be in her office. She will be working.

Unit 24; Part C

galka.jpgWe also use will be -ing in a different way: to talk about complete actions in the future.
24.2.jpgFor example:
•    The government will be making a statement about the crisis later today.
    Will you be going away this summer?
    Later in the programme, I'll be talking to the Minister of Education ...
    Our best player is injured and won't be playing in the game on Saturday.

In these examples will be -ing is similar to (be) going to ...

Unit 24; Part D

We use will have (done) (future perfect) to say that something will already be complete before a time in the future. For example:
    Sally always leaves for work at 8.30 in the morning. She won't be at home at 9 o'clock - she'll have gone to work.
    We're late. The film will already have started by the time we get to the cinema.

Compare will have (done) with other perfect forms:

    Ted and Amy have been married for 24 years.  (present perfect)
      Next year they will have been married for 25 years.
      When their son was born, they had been married for three years.
(past perfect)

He starts work again at 1.15 and goes home at exactly 4.30. Every day he follows the same routine and tomorrow will be no exception.
