    day when?

    Hello, teachers!

    I've found the following:

    1. The day when my dream will come true might come.

    Should #1 be written as follows?

    2. The day might come when my dream will come true.

    Or, both are correct?

    Thank you very much in advance for your help on this.

    See my amendments and notes above in red and grey. Remember to use inversion in the interrogative.

    I find sentence #2 much more natural. In sentence #1, the two instances of "come" are very close together and it sounds awkward. Of course, you could just say "One day, my dream might come true".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
