Uses

1. We use the future perfect continuous to show that something is going to continue into the future until another action or time in the future.

Examples:

 Jessica will have been studying English for 5 years when she moves to England next April.
 I’m going to have been running 20 kilometers daily for at least a month before the marathon.
 Will you have been living together for long before you get married?

2. The use of the future perfect continuous is a way to show cause and effect in the future.

Examples:

 Jessica’s English will be perfect when she moves to England next year as she’ll have been studying it for five years.
 I’m not worried about the marathon as I’ll have been running 20 kilometers a day for several weeks before.

Note: Keep in mind the rules regarding the use of the perfect tenses and time expressions as well as the rules regarding verbs in the continuous tenses.
