Introduction

In the previous unit, we have discussed the Future Perfect Tense in detail. We assume that you have learned the forms of verbs and their meanings in this unit and are also aware of What is Tense. If not, please click these links and learn them first.

This tense tells about the action which will have begun and continued in the future. This tense has thus a specific time mentioned. e.g. He will have been playing GTA 5 since morning, They will have ordering Mi Phone from Amazon for a few days, etc.

In Hindi/Urdu, Present Perfect Continuous Tense ends with se raha hoga, se rahi hogi, se rhe hoge. e.g. Wo kal se Khana kha raha hoga.

In this tense, we use will have been and shall have been and -ing form (present participle form) of the verb and mention time using since or for.

Since & For

Before we move forward, let us understand the use of since and for

Since is used for point of time i.e. when we know the exact time, day, month, week, year, etc. e.g. since 9 O’Clock, since Wednesday, since January, since 2013, since morning, etc.

On the other hand, For is used for a period of time i.e. when we don’t know the exact time, date, week, month, year, etc. e.g. for 7 hours, for 9 days, for 4 weeks, for several months, for many years, etc. Please look at the following image for the recap.
