#EngClass: Future Perfect Tense

Hari ini kita akan membahas Future Perfect Tense.

Future Perfect Tense menggambarkan bahwa suatu pekerjaan akan sudah selesai di waktu tertentu di masa depansebelum suatu kejadian lain terjadi.

Terdapat beberapa pola kalimat dalam future perfect tense, yaitu

  • (+): S + will have + v3.
  • (-): S + will not have + v3.
  • (?): Will + S + have + v3 + ?

note: “will have” dapat digunakan untuk semua subjek (‘I,’ ‘you,’ ‘we,’ ‘they,’ ‘he,’ ‘she,’ ‘it’)

Contoh:

  • We will have visited Bali by April. (We will visit Bali in March. We will meet you in April.)

Apa perbedaan dari Future Tense dan Future Perfect tense? Keduanya terjadi di masa depan kan. Coba perhatikan contoh di atas.

Contoh 1: (Future Tense) We will visit Bali in March.

  • Arti: Kami akan mengunjungi Bali bulan Maret. Kapan (akan) pergi? Nanti, bulan Maret. Sekarang masih bulan Januari.

Contoh 2: (Future Tense) We will meet you in April.

  • Arti: Kita akan bertemu kamu bulan April. Kapan (akan) bertemu? Nanti, bulan April. Sekarang masih bulan Januari.

Contoh 3: (Future Perfect Tense) We will have visited Bali by April.

  • Arti: Kita akan sudah mengunjungi Bali bulan April nanti. Kapan ke Bali? Sebelum April.

Let’s try this one: What is the meaning of the following sentence?

“I will have finished all my work by the time I go out on a date tonight.”

Arti: Aku akan sudah menyelesaikan semua tugas/pekerjaanku waktu pergi kencan nanti malam.

Pertanyaan tambahan: Jadi, kapan tugas-tugasnya selesai?
