    Re: future continuous

    I can only say for Spanish, as that's the only Romance language I speak.

    The Spanish future continuous, or el futuro progresivo is similar to English future continuous. In both languages, the future continuous expresses an action that will be in progress at a certain point in the future. Even their formation is the same (well, to some extent).

    In Spanish it is formed with the future of estar + present participle of the action verb.

    e.g.
    Maņana, estaremos comiendo en Londres.
    (Tomorrow, we will be eating in London.)
