Present tenses in future time clauses, British Council


We don't use future tenses with 'when', 'while', 'as soon as', 'until', 'after' or 'before':When I get home, I'll have dinner.We use the present continuous, not the future continuous with things which will be in progress in the future:I'll call you while I'm cooking supper.In time clauses, we use the present perfect to talk about things which will have finished in the future.I'll get a good job when I have passed my exams.The clause with the time word can go first or second. When it goes first, use a comma:When I get home, I'll have dinner.I'll have dinner when I get home.
