Future perfect (e.g.: habré hablado)

An Overview of the Future Perfect

The future perfect (or preterito anterior) is used to describe a future action that precedes and is relevant for another future action, e.g.: Cuando termino, habrán llegado mis primos. ("When I finish, my cousins will have arrived.")

It tends to follow a phrase written in the present or the simple future.

How to Form the Future Perfect

The future perfect is formed by using the simple future of haber, followed by the past participle. This is illustrated in the following table:
