Purpose: Making a prediction about the future
Active voice: By this time next year, I’ll be working somewhere else.
Passive voice: There is NO PASSIVE VOICE for future continuous.
Important differences when using "while" + present continuous/future continuous
While + present continuous refers to time
While I'm marking papers, I won't be taking any calls.
- Native speakers won't say "While I'll be marking papers,…" when referring to a future situation like this.
While + future continuous = Even though
Q. If we want to dispute our marks, will you recheck our papers?
A. While I will be rechecking papers upon request, your mark might go up or down.
- This structure functions as a modal: a native speaker will emphasize "WILL" to confirm the possibility of rechecking papers. The focus of this statement is not on time but on possibility.
