Step by step instructions

Futuro Perfecto is a compound tense (Spanish: compuesto). It means that all of its inflected forms consist of two words. In Spanish language, there are also simple tenses, where each inflected verb form is one word long.

In a compound tense the endings of the auxiliary verb change, not the endings of the main verb, which is the case in Spanish simple tenses.

In the compound tenses, every person’s form consist of two parts:
  • A conjugated form of the auxiliary verb haber. In case of the Futuro Perfecto de Indicativo tense, we use the Futuro Imperfecto de Indicativo (Future) conjugation of haber
  • Past Participle, which is always the same in every compound tense for a given verb

In order to create the Participio form, we need a stem and an ending. We use the stem of the infinitive of the main verb, and a single ending, which depends on the conjugation group of the main verb. So we begin by splitting the infinitive into a stem and an ending. It’s easy to do – simply remove two letters from the end of the infinitive and you have the ending – one of -ar, -er, -ir. What’s left is the stem.

So in case of our verb:
  • the stem is: atend-
  • and the ending is: -er
Based on the ending of the infinitive we can tell that atender belongs to the -er verb group. This group, in turn, uses the -ido ending in its Participio form. Putting all that together, our Participio is: atendido.

And now, as we understand how both parts used by this tense are created separately, let’s move on with creating the final conjugation forms.

Image of Conjugate haber in Futuro ...In order to create the first person singular form, we need to take the first person singular form of haber conjugated in Futuro Imperfecto de Indicativo, which is habré. To that we add the Participio atendido to get habré atendido:
  • yo habré atendido

Next, to create the form for the second person singular, we again need to take the second person singular form of haber from the Futuro Imperfecto de Indicativo tense, and it is habrás. And to this auxiliary verb we add the Participio atendido (so the exact same word as previously) to get habrás atendido:
  • tú habrás atendido
Similarly, if we want to create the form for the third person singular, we conjugate haber in the Futuro tense and we use the corresponding person’s form (third person singular), namely habrá. Then we also take the same Participio as for all other persons, and putting them together we get habrá atendido:
  • él habrá atendido
  • ella habrá atendido
  • usted habrá atendido

The first person plural has the form habremos atendido. It’s created by following the same logic as in the other persons. We first take the form of the first person plural from haber conjugation in the Futuro Imperfecto de Indicativo tense: habremos. Second, and to this word we again add the Participio of atender: atendido to get habremos atendido:
  • nosotros habremos atendido
  • nosotras habremos atendido

We have to get the inflected form of the verb haber in the Futuro Imperfecto de Indicativo tense, second person plural, and it is habréis. Next, we take the unchanged Participio, we join them, and we get habréis atendido:
  • vosotros habréis atendido
  • vosotras habréis atendido

And finally, the last grammatical person on the list, the third person plural, has the form habrán atendido. We create it in the exact same manner as in all the other grammatical persons. We need the third person plural of haber first, from its Futuro conjugation. It is habrán. We add the Participio of atender again (atendido) to get habrán atendido:
  • ellos habrán atendido
  • ellas habrán atendido
  • ustedes habrán atendido

This is it! The conjugation is now finished. But don’t end your session yet – it’s important to repeat and practice the material in order to remember it. Check below for next steps.
