Lesson 33 – The Anterior Future Tense

Leçon 33 – Le futur antérieur

The anterior future describes an action that hasn’t happened yet, but will be completed before a particular time or action in the future. In English, it is equivalent to the future perfect tense.

The two auxiliary verbs used:

être – to use if the main verb is a motion verb or a reflexive verb

avoir – to use in all other cases

Avoir

Etre

je

aurai

serai

tu

auras

seras

il/elle/on

aura

sera

nous

aurons

serons

vous

aurez

serez

ils/elles

auront

seront

  • I will have done my homework before I eat dinner.
  • J’aurai fait les devoirs avant que mange le dîner.

  • Elle sera partie pour l’école avant que je me réveille.

I hope you found this short lesson to be useful! Have a great week, everyone!

A la prochaine !
