In this Spanish lesson we are going to learn more about the Spanish Future Perfect grammar tense El futuro perfecto. This is the second 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 the irregular Spanish past participles such as Abierto (opened), Hecho (done) and Escrito (written). In the previous Spanish lesson we looked at how to use El futuro perfecto with regular Spanish past participles ending in -ado or -ido and in the next lesson we will look at the different uses of the Spanish Future Perfect with example sentences.
