    When + will + subject

    Is it correct to say or write:

    When will you (or any subject).......................?

    but not:

    When I (or any subject) will..........................



    Thank you in anticipation of any help.

    Andy

    Welcome to the forum, Andy.

    When I will retire has not yet been decided.

    That's possible.

    "When I will go to England" does not sound right to me but........

    "When will you leave England? sounds as if it is correct.

    "When I will go to England" is not natural.
