    Default the difference of the two sentences

    hi,

    as the title.

    1. The day may soon come when we say goodbuy to most languages.

    2. I am looking forward to the day when we will see each other again.

    The tenses of the two sentences are different. Can I use future tense or present tense in both sentences?

    Thanks

    Paula

    I see no reason why not. Please consider your context.

    Hi Paula,

    I think it was a typo in your first sentence. Was "goodbye" the right word?
