Will be doing and will have done


A.    First study  this example situation :
      Tom is football fan and there is a football match on television this evening. The match begins at 7. 30 and ends at 9.15. Ann wants to come and see tom this evening and wants know what time to come:
       Ann:   Is it all right if I come at about 8.30?
       Tom:  No, don’t come then. I’ll be watching the match on Television.
       Ann:   Oh, well, what about 9.30?
       Tom:  Yes, that’ll be fine. The match will have finished by then.
B.     We used will be doing (future Continuous) to say what that we will be in the middle of doing something at a certain time in the future. The football match begins at 7.30 and end at 9.15 so during this time, for example at 8.30, Tom will be watching at match. Here are some more example:
-          You’ll recognize her when you see her. She’ll be wearing a yellow hat.
-          This time next week I’ll be on holiday. I’ll probably be lying on a beautiful beach.
    Compare will be doing with the other continuous forms:
     Tom works every morning from 9 o’clock until midday. So:
-          At 10 o’clock yesterday he was working. ( past continuous )
-          It’s 10 o’clock now. He is working. ( present continuous )
-          At 10 o’clock tomorrow he will be working.
C.     You can also will be doing in another way: to talk about things which are already planned or decided: - I’ll be going to the city center later. Can I get you anything?
D.    We used will have done (Future Perfect) to say that something will already have happened before a certain time in the future. Here are some more examples;
-          Next year is Ted and Amy’s 25th wedding anniversary. They will have been married for 25 years. (Now they have been married for 24 years)
-          We’re late. I expect the film will already have started by the time we get to the cinema.
I.                   Example: I’m going to watch TV from 9 until 10 o’clock this evening. So at 9.30 I will be watching TV.
1.      Tomorrow afternoon I’m going to play tennis from 3 o’clock until 4.30. So at 4 o’clock tomorrow I …………………………………………………………….
2.      Jim is going to study from 7 o’clock until 10 o’clock this evening. So at 8.30 this evening he …………………………………………..
3.      We are going to clean the flat tomorrow. It will take from 9 until 11 o’clock. So at 10 o’clock tomorrow morning ………………….
II.                Bob always read newspaper in the morning. It always takes him half an hour, from 8 o’clock until 8.30. So;
1.      At 8.15 yesterday morning Bob……………………
2.      It’s 8.15 now. He………………………………….
3.      At 8.15 tomorrow morning he…………………… .
III.             Example: You want to borrow your friend’s bicycle this evening. (You/use/your bicycle this evening?). Will you be using your bicycle this evening?
1.      You want your friend to give Tom a message this afternoon. (You/see/Ton this afternoon?)………………………………………………………..
2.      You want your friend’s typewriter tomorrow evening.(You/use/your typewriter tomorrow evening?)………………………………………………….
3.      Your friend is going shopping. You want him/her to buy some stamps for you at the post office.(you/pass/the post office when you’re in town?)…………………..
IV.             Example: Tom and Ann are going to the cinema. The film begins at 7.30 and it is already 7.20. And it will take them 20 minutes to get there. When they get there,(the film/already/star) the film will have already started.
1.      Jim always goes to bed at 11 o’clock. Tom is going to visit him at 11.30 this evening. When Tom arrives, Jim……………………………
2.      Tom is on holiday. He has very little money and he is spending too much too quickly. Before the end of his holiday, (he/spend/all his money)…………………
3.      Chuck came to Britain from the US nearly three years ago. Next Monday it will be exactly three years since he arrived. Next Monday (he/be/here/exactly three years)…………………………………….






Present perfect (I have done/ I have been doing)
How long have they been married? 
They have been married for 20 years.
 
Bob and Alice are married. They got married exactly 20 years ago. So today is their 20th wedding anniversary. They have been married for 20 years.
We use the present perfect to say how long something has existed or how long something has been happening.
They are married {

b) We use the present perfect continuous (I have been doing) to say how to long something has been happening. Note that the action is still happening now:
- I’ve been learning English for a long time.
- Sorry I’m late. Have you been waiting a long?
- It’s been raining since I got up this morning.
Sometimes the action is a repeated action (see also Unit 16B)
- Tom has been driving for ten years.
- How long have you been smoking?
The continuous (I have been doing) or the simple (I have done) can be used for actions repeated over a long period:
- I‘ve been collecting/ I’ve collected stamps since I was child.
c) We use the simple (I have done) for situations that exist for a long time (especially if we say always). Note that the situation still exists now:
- My farther has always worked hard. (not ’has always been working) 
We use the continuous for situations over a shorter time. Compare:
- John has been living in a London since January.
- John has always lived in London.
d) Some verbs (example be, have, know) are not normally used in the continuous see Unit 31 for a list and Unit 24 for have):
- How long have Bob and Alice been married?
- Tom has had a cold for the past week. (not ‘has been having’)
- Tom and I have known each other since we were at school.
e) Do not use present simple (I do) or continuous (I am doing)to say how long something has been happening:  - I’ve been waiting here for an hour. (not ‘I am waiting’)
- How long have you known Tom? (not ‘do you know’)
