Future 2 progressive
The future 2 progressive is used in the same way as the future 2 in English, but the focus is on continuous execution.
Future 2 progressive formation
will have been + Infinitive + “-ing“
Just like other progressive tenses, the future 2 progressive is formed with the help of the “to be” form “been” and a verb + “-ing”. In contrast to the other progressive tenses, however, a “will have” is still needed. So the order is written as in the heading. You should also keep in mind that you are following the word order (Subject, Predicate, Object).
will not have been + Infinitive + „-ing“
Also, the negation is not really difficult, just like the formation of a “normal” sentence. That means you just have to write a “not” behind the verb “will”.
On the other hand, there are no irregular verbs in the future 2 progressive.
What to consider in the progressive form of the future 2!
Spelling rules to “-ing” formation:
Particularly, making verbs with ing at the end is very simple. However, there are few points to consider:
1. For verbs ending in “-e”:
The “-e” goes away:
- give becomes giving
2. Verbs ending in “-er”, “-ur”, “-ir”:
The final consonant is doubled:
- occurs to occurring
3. Monosyllabic verbs ending on a stressed consonant:
As with the second rule, the last consonant is doubled here:
- get becomes getting
- swim becomes swimming
- fit becomes fitting
4. Verbs ending in “-ie”:
For this purpose, the “-ie” is replaced by a “-y” in the formation:
- lie becomes lying
Don’t get twisted:
Both “will not” and “I will” are to be equated with “won’t” or “I’l“.

Future 2 progressive signal words

How the Progressive form of Future 2 is used in English!
- Just like the future 2 simple, the Future 2 progressive tense is the prelude to an event in the future. In contrast to the future 2 simple, the focus of the Future 2 progressive is on the continuous duration of this event.
Hey, I used to think that language learning was innate. Either you can speak English or not and it doesn’t matter how much you learn -“Anyway I don’t record good grades in English.” And that’s where English is so important.
After a while, I gave myself one last chance to learn English. Only this time I limited myself to the essential points.
For me, that meant verbs: formation – examples – signal words & usage
This method enabled me to learn English faster than ever before.
Since then I know that learning languages is not innate. And through that realization, my vision has become to offer other students the opportunity to learn English, just like I did back then. Now I ask you to help me by sharing this article with your friends!
Thank you very much!
