    Default exercise on future 4

    Dear teachers,

    Would you please correct my answers ? When do I have to use the simple present or the present perfect after a time conjunction ?

    1) I WILL not BE in touch unless there IS something urgent to tell you.

    2) The children WILL not go to bed until they a) HAVE / b) HAVE HAD a glass of milk.

    3) You WILL phone me before you GO away, WONíT you?

    4) A- When a) WILL you GO / b) ARE you GOING to the pub?
    B- When I c) FINISH / d) HAVE FINISHED this work. It WILL take another hour.

    5) If you DO not HURRY up, we WILL BE late.

    6) I WILL COME to London as soon as you FIND somewhere for us to live.

    7) Iím sure you WILL FEEL a lot better after you TAKE this medicine.

    8) We WILL HAVE dinner as soon as all the guests ARRIVE.

    9) You WILL NOT FORGET to lock the door if you GO out, WILL you ?

    10) I WILL not LET you go until I a) AM / b) HAVE BEEN told the truth. Which of you did it ?

    Thanks a million.

    The present perfect just emphasises completion, so normally both can be used- in 5, I think it sounds better in the present perfect, but the present simple works too.
