Often before students of English there is a question: what time to choose, Future Perfect or Future Perfect Continuous?
The future perfect long time - the mostrare English time. It has one single function and is practically not used in the speech of native speakers.

However, in one exceptional case, you need to use Future Perfect Continuous. Let's consider it in detail.
This species-time form describes the situation,which will begin earlier than another action in the future and will last at this moment. With the help of this time, emphasis is placed on the fact that the action will continue at any moment.
- We will have studied maths for 5 years next month. - We will begin to study mathematics for the next 5 years next month.
- By the first of April we will have been prepearing for an exam for a year. - The first of April will be the year, as we prepare for the exam.
It should be remembered that after by, when and someother unions do not use the future time. It is being replaced by the present. In the affirmative form of an absolutely-long time, the auxiliary verb to be is used in the species-temporal form Future Perfect and the basic semantic verb, to which the so-called "ingovoe" ending is added. Thus, unlike the future perfect time, emphasis is placed on the duration of the action. Also, the second distinctive feature of a long time is that one situation occurs before the other and will occur at any time or point.
