Future Perfect in Portuguese

Ejemplo del futuro compuesto en portugués.

Hello everybody! Today we will be learning the equivalent to the Future Perfect in Portuguese, also called “Futuro do Presente Composto do Indicativo”. This is the future version of another Dica we had, about the Present Perfect.

The “Futuro do Presente Composto do Indicativo” is a verb tense used to describe a situation that is expected, or planned, to happen before a specific moment in the future. It is a grammatical combination of a future timescale and the perfect tense (a grammatical aspect that indicates a completed event).

This verb tense is a composition, formed by the combination of an auxiliary verb and the main verb. The auxiliary verb “ter” is conjugated in the future perfect and the main verb appears in the participle.

But first let’s remind ourselves, what is a participle?

Regular Participle

1.ª conjugação (-ar): root of the verb + -ado
2.ª conjugação (-er): root of the verb + -ido
3.ª conjugação (-ir): root of the verb + -ido

Irregular Verbs in the Participle

abrir aberto
cobrir coberto
dizer dito
escrever escrito
fazer feito
pôr posto
ver visto
vir vindo

 

Now, we just need to put the verb “ter” (in the future perfect simple) together with the main verb in the participle:

The Structure of Future Perfect

Pronoun Auxiliary Verb Participle
Eu terei participle from the main verb
Tu terás participle from the main verb
Ele terá participle from the main verb
Nós teremos participle from the main verb
Vós tereis participle from the main verb
Eles terão participle from the main verb

 

Do you think you got it? How about we see some great examples?

Quando você chegar, ele já terá terminado o livro.  When you get here, he will have already finished with the book.
Daqui a uma semana eu já terei finalizado o projeto. A week from now, I will have finished the project.
Com certeza, eles ainda não terão concluído este trabalho amanhã. For sure, they still won’t have finished this job tomorrow.
Elas não terão saído no Carnaval. They won’t have gone out during Carnival.
Será que ela terá feito a palestra em dois meses? Do you think she will have done the lecture within two months?

 

Future Perfect: Exercises

Let’s complete the blanks with the proper use of the “Futuro do Presente Composto do Indicativo” :

  • Amanhã quando você chegar, ele com certeza já ______________________ (ir) para Nova Iorque.
  • Daqui a cinco dias, ela ______________________ (fazer) todos os exercícios.
  • Ana ______________________ (viajar) por todo o mundo quando completar 80 anos.

I’ve just started online classes with Prof. Ana Carolina & she is the absolute best! It’s my first time learning Portuguese and I was speaking full sentences in the first class. Obrigada!

Small classes, diverse accents, and engaging professors make Rio & Learn Online a fantastic choice! I've been thrilled with my experience at Rio & Learn Online so far. The small class sizes (around 1-3 others students) allow for personalized attention and plenty of opportunities to practice speaking. What's more, having different professors throughout the program exposes you to various accents, preparing you for real-world interactions. I opted for the full-time program, which involves 2 hours of daily learning from Monday to Friday. After just over 12 weeks, I can confidently say my Portuguese has improved dramatically. The professors are incredibly engaging and encourage students to utilize real-life examples, solidifying the learning process. While I'm only halfway through the program, I'm confident in recommending Rio & Learn Online to anyone seeking to learn Portuguese in a supportive and effective environment. I've gone from being a complete beginner (only knowing hi and bye) to holding conversations - and I'm excited to see how much further I can progress! I'll be back with another review after completing the program, but for now: Rio & Learn Online - highly recommended!

Rio & Learn e um novo jeito de ensinar a lingua portuguesa. Puro prazer e muito eficiente. Quanto mais alunos na aula mais vida. Eu aconselho voces escolher as aulas grupais por porque sao interativas: rir, falar, argumentar, compartir uma lingua!

Après 3 semaines que je suis dans cette école et je peux déjà parler portugais. Certe avec des erreurs mais j'ai fait des progrès fulgurant. En plus, du Lundi au Vendredi l'ecole propose des activitées qu'il appelle "Rio Live" ce qui permet de visiter en même temps Rio tout en parlant Portugais et de rencontrer des gens😃 Toute l'équipe est genial et est prêts à aider si besoin 😁

I've been taking the group online courses with Rio&Learn for 2 months. They offer a fantastic way to learn Portuguese and get speaking practice if you don't live in Brazil. The teachers are engaging and are able to adjust their level of Portuguese to whatever level you are at. Obrigado!

C'est vraiment fantastique...RioAndLearn. Les cours de portugais...ça vaut vraiment la peine. Les cours ont lieu du lundi au vendredi, (de 9h à 13h) et en après midi, ce sont des activités libres en groupe. (Soccer de plage, volleyball , excursions, visites des lieux touristiques, etc) Vendredi soir, on est allé à Lapa, un quartier nocturne de Rio. C'est quelque chose à voir! Des rues bondées de monde, des orchestres, des discothèques...Allô les décibels! L'apprentissage du portugais se fait en immersion, aussi bien en salle de classe que dans les activités extérieures organisées par Rio&Learn. On est plongé dans la langue portugaise et la culture Brésilienne.... Obligé de parler portugais....🫡 Je le recommande. Pierre Pedro, Montréal, Canada
