Future Perfect

Spanish future perfectWouldn’t it be nice if you could plan a perfect future? Too bad that’s not what the future perfect tense does. The grammatical term “perfect” means “completed,” so the future perfect is used to talk about something that will have happened or will have been completed at some point in the future.

Perfect Infinitive

The Spanish perfect infinitive indicates an action that occurred before the action of the main verb, but only when the subject of both verbs is the same. The perfect infinitive sounds awkward in English – we usually change it to another tense or reword the sentence completely.
