Conjugate verbs (+ être) in Le Futur antérieur (future perfect)

Just as in Le Passé Composé, the verbs taking être as their auxiliary in Le Futur Antérieur are:

reflexive verbs:

Je me serai lavé d'ici là.
I'll have washed by then.

Est-ce que tu te seras levée d'ici 11 heures ?
Will you have got up by 11?

Elle se sera bien amusée ce jour-là !
She'll have had a good time that day!

Nous nous serons trompés de date.
We'll have got the date wrong.

Vous vous serez trompés d'heure.
You'll have got the time wrong.

Elles se seront réveillées trop tard et auront manqué leur train.
They'll have woken up too late and missed their train.

The rule is as follows:
reflexive pronoun + the verb être in Le Futur past participle

Note also that the past participle agrees in gender and number with the subject

- the following list: 

aller to go
arriver to arrive
demeurer to remain
descendre to go down / to get off
devenir to become
entrer to come in
monter to go up / to get on
mourir to die
naître to be born
partir to leave
passer to pass
rentrer to come back in / to come home
rester to stay
retourner to go back
revenir to come back
sortir to go out
tomber to fall
venir to come


To see how to form Le Futur antérieur of these verbs, look at the example of aller:

Je serai allé au Canada une fois.
I will have gone to Canada once.

Tu seras allé dans tellement d'endroits!
You will have gone so many places!

Marie sera allée les voir.
Marie will have gone to see them.

Nous serons allés à Paris avant de te voir.
We will have gone to Paris before seeing you.

Serez-vous allées au supermarché?
Will you have gone to the supermarket?

Ils seront allés au parc.
They will have gone to the park.

Elles seront allées visiter le Louvre.
They will have gone to visit the Louvre.

The rule is as follows:
the verb être in Le Futur past participle


Note
also that the past participle (here allé) agrees in gender and number with the subject. So use allée (fem. sing.), or allés/allées (plural masc/fem).

ne explétif

Isn't it also correct to use the ne explétif? "J'ai eu peur que nous ne soyons arrivés trop tard." I entered this and it was marked wrong. Thanks.

Bonjour Ramsay !

Your sentence is indeed correct, unfortunately you reported it on the wrong lesson, which makes it difficult for me to update the question.
Could you please use the "Report" button next to the relevant question in your Correction Board, and I'll be happy to resolve it for you (and other users!) :)

Merci beaucoup et à bientôt !

Retourner can also use Avoir, if used in a reflexive mode.

Are there other cases? Maybe you could make a note on that in the lessons list.

Bonjour Jose !

Actually, the reflexive "se retourner" will always use "être", not "avoir" :
Je me suis retourné. (I turned over)

Bonne journée !

Un the hunt for an example in English, I chanced across a similar construct:

"I am not leaving before he has not greeted me." What you want to say is that you won't leave unless he has greeted you first. Of course you can also say "I am not leaving before he has greeted me." but that doesn't sound quite right. The "not" in the example above is also a "ne expletif" just as in French. Just that in French they are more common than in English.

Bonjour Vanessa !

"demeurer" is one of these verbs that can take either avoir or être as auxiliary in compound tenses.

Here is a link to the related lesson:

I hope that's helpful!
À bientôt !
