In this Spanish lesson we are going to learn the Spanish Future Perfect grammar tense El futuro perfecto. This is the first lesson in a series of three Spanish video lessons on the topic. The Spanish Future Perfect tense is used to describe what will have happened in the future by a certain time or before another action occurs. All of the Perfect Spanish grammar tenses, including the Future Perfect, are formed by combining the auxiliary verb Haber with a past participle. With the Spanish Future Perfect, Haber is conjugated in the future tense. Most Spanish past participles end in -ado or -ido, but be aware that there are some irregular past participles. Be aware also that the past participle never changes form with perfect tenses. In this Spanish lesson we will see how to use El futuro perfecto with regular Spanish past participles of -ar, -er and -ir ending verbs. In the next lesson in the series we will see how the irregular verbs work and in the final lesson we will look at the different uses of the Spanish Future Perfect with example sentences.

Lesson notes:

AR verbs: -ado (trabajado)
ER verbs: -ido (comido)
