I hope it is clear, I would like to say "I will be doing my home work in 2 hours". I mean I will be in action in 2 hours. It can be said like that? Ich werde in zwei Stunden meine Hausaufgaben machen. Thanks!

  • And not a minute more ! I have your word ! Seriously, if that is a question "can it be said" then, yes, it can. – a_donda Apr 3 '20 at 15:22

    What's about using DeepL before asking here? Please note, your question is off-topic on SE German language (see on-topic. – help-info.de Apr 3 '20 at 16:13
  • @a_donda it was question, sorry forgot question mark. – Dragut Apr 3 '20 at 16:32
  • "Ich werde in zwei Stunden meine Hausaufgaben machen." is correct but may sound somewhat formal due to the use of future tense.
  • Everyday spoken German would probably use present tense: "Ich mache meine Hausaufgaben in zwei Stunden."

Both sentences are a bit ambiguous whether the homeworks starts in 2 hours or whether the duration is two hours. "In zwei Stunden fange ich mit meinen Hausaufgaben an." would be unambiguous. As would be: "Für meine Hausaufgaben brauche ich zwei Stunden."
