When we talk about the future using “when + verb”, it’s not necessary to use “will”… we simply use the simple tense of the verb.
1. When I am rich, I’m going to buy a little beach house somewhere along the coast in Ceará.
2. Have you thought about what you would like to do one day when you retire? Would you like to take up a new hobby, invest in a business… or just relax?
3. When my daughter is a teenager I will need to get some good parenting advice from others who have “been there before”. I have another 9 years more or less to prepare myself.
4. One day when I visit Rio de Janeiro, I’d like to experience all of the tourist attractions. What would you say is the number one thing that everyone has to do when they go to Rio?
5. When I get my Brazilian Citizenship, I will be able to travel throughout South America without a passport. If only the traveling itself weren’t so expensive!
6. When we have a new governor and mayor, do you think they will do a better job than the current ones?
7. It will be a sad day when Nelson Mandela dies. He is 94 years old this year… and “time waits for no man”. When you die, what would you like people to say or think about you? (This example was written months before his death)
8. When I get a credit card I will be able to accumulate miles. The more I spend, the more miles I’ll get!
