    When you get home/By the time you get home.

    Hello, dear forum users! I'd really appreciate your explanation on these points:

    1. When you get home, Iíll be eating your candy.
    2. By the time you get home, Iíll be eating your candy.

    Are both sentences correct?
    If yes, what's the difference in meaning?

    Re: When you get home/By the time you get home.

    Please note that I have changed your thread title.

    Extract from the Posting Guidelines:

    'Thread titles should include all or part of the word/phrase being discussed.'


    They are both correct and mean the same to me.
