    different structure same meaning

    "I'm sure they'll be done working on the project by December 15."

    OR

    "I'm sure they will have finished working on the project by December 15."

    Re: different structure same meaning

    Hello,

    There's no difference in meaning but the first is very bad English and has nothing to recommend it. Said by an uneducated person I would understand it to mean exactly the same as the 'will have finished working' sentence.
