    I believe that OD was simply pointing out a typo that is in the site. It's not an inquiry about which is correct.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.

    Re: We'l

    But I just pointed out that in spite of correcting the contraction, the sentence was still not correct because of the incorrect position of "soon". I probably didn't make that clear enough. I should have underlined "soon" as well as "not, or just explained why the sentence was still wrong.
