Plz. Correct the sentence

Beitrag von Sansy »

 Please suggest which one of the following sentences is correct - 
a) When all your dreams will fade away, I'll still shine as reality! 
b) When all your dreams fade away, I'll still shine as reality!
Is this conditional sentence type 1 that needs to have a grammatical syntax of when + simple present (sub clause) + will (simple future, main clause)? 
Thanks

Please suggest which one of the following sentences is correct - 
a) When all your dreams will fade away, I'll still shine as reality! Not really grammatical.
b) When all your dreams fade away, I'll still shine as reality! Yes, yes, yes! :jo:

:watch: As a rule we find the
Present Tense in the subordinate time- or conditional clause
and the
Future Tense in the main clause.

(Exception: "will" meaning "want to" or "be willing to")



Is this conditional sentence type 1 no, it is a time clause, a conditional clause would begin with "if"

that needs to have a grammatical syntax of when + simple present (sub clause) + will (simple future, main clause)? 
Thanks
Have a nice evening!

Hi Sansy :)

Sentence B is correct grammatically, as Duckduck already explained. However, I don't understand the second part of the sentence (what I underlined above). Could you explain what you mean by "as reality"?

Hi Duckduck, thanks a lot for the warm welcome and helping me out with such a great explanation. I totally agree with you.

It seems I need to revise clauses and their rules more meticulously now. ☺️ 

Gratitude and regards,
Sansy
