Latin

I need some help with pluperfect/future perfect translations.

I shall meet
You (singular) will arrive
You (plural) will leave
They will carry
They will put on

I can't figure them out for the life of me! Thanks, Natalie

  1. I don't see any pluperfect or future perfect tenses here. The equivalents in English would be like these:

    Pluperfect:
    I had met him before I met her.

    Future perfect:
    They will have carried the food to the beach by the time we get there.

    Your sentences are all in the future tense -- regular future tense.

  2. That's what the chapter was about, though. Pluperfect and future perfect I mean. I'm just seriously stuck because my translations don't fit into the blanks on my worksheet.
