10.2 The futur antérieur

The futur antérieur correspond to the English future perfect.

I will have written a letter by tomorrow.

The futur antérieur describes an action that will be finished in the future.

Further, it describes assumptions as to be seen in the example:

  a: Il n' est pas venu à l' école hier.
b: Il aura été malade.
    a: He has not come to school yesterday.
b: He will have been sick.
