    Past and future


    The past perfect tense vs. The past perfect continuous


    Basic uses:

     

     The past perfect is used to show that an action or event in the past took place ( or didn't take place) before another action/point of time in the past.

                                                    Form: Had + verb in the past participle


     The past perfect continuous form indicates that a process/activity was ( or wasn't ) taking place before something else happened in the past.


                                                    Form : Had+ been + Verb + ing


    Future perfect simple vs. Future perfect continuous


    Basic uses:

     

     We use the future perfect simple, when we want to speak about a process or activity or event completed at or done before a particular time in the future.

                                                  

                                                                          Form: Will + have + verb in the past participle



     We use the future perfect continuous, if we want to stress the continuity of the future event.



                                                           Form: Will + Have + Been + Verb + ing
