#EngClass: Future Perfect Progressive Tense

Future Perfect Progressive bisa digunakan untuk menyatakan sesuatu yang telah terjadi selama kurun waktu tertentu (akan sudah …. selama…)

Contoh:

  • He will have been working in the company for 10 years next Monday.”

Arti: Dia akan sudah bekerja di perusahaan itu selama 10 tahun hari Senin depan. Hari Senin depan adalah peringatan 10 tahun dia bekerja di perusahaan itu. Dia mulai bekerja 10 tahun sebelum Senin depan.

Pola kalimat positif

“S + will/shall/to be going to + have been + V -ing + for… .”

Dalam kalimat Future Perfect Progressive, ‘will’/’shall’ dan ‘to be going to‘ dapat dipakai secara bergantian.

Future Perfect Progressive menyatakan durasi pekerjaan/kegiatan saat kejadian lain terjadi di masa depan.

Contoh:

  • “I will go to bed at 10pm.”
  • “He will get home at midnight.”
  • “I will be sleeping at midnight.”

Jika digabungkan, klausa-klausa di atas dapat digunakan untuk membuat kalimat dengan Future Perfect Progressive, sehingga menjadi

  • I will have been sleeping for two hours by the time he gets home.”

Arti: Aku akan sudah tidur selama 2 jam waktu dia pulang.

Contoh lain:

Aku dulu tinggal di rumah lama. Aku pindah ke rumah baru tanggal 8 Februari 2010. Tanggal 8 Februari 2012 nanti, aku akan sudah 2 tahun tinggal di rumah baru.

Future Perfect Progressive:

  • “I will have been staying in this house for 2 years by next Wednesday (8th of February, 2012).”

Are y’all still with me? Let’s test.

“She will have been teaching for 6 years by next Saturday.” Jadi, kapan tepatnya (tanggal berapa) dia mulai mengajar?

Jawaban: Dia mulai ngajar tgl 11 February 2006.

Pola kalimat tanya

Will/shall + S + have been + V -ing + … + for … ? OR: To be + S + going to + have been + V -ing + … + for … ?”

Contoh:

  • “Will she have been teaching for 6 years next Saturday?” (Apa dia akan sudah mengajar selama 6 tahun, hari Sabtu depan?)

Jika ingin menanyakan durasi (sudah berapa lama) suatu pekerjaan/kegiatan sudah berlangsung pada suatu saat di waktu yang akan datang, umumnya digunakan kata tanya how long (berapa lama). Check out the following example.

  • “How long will you have been learning English this year?” [(Akan) Sudah berapa lama kamu belajar B.Inggris tahun ini?]
