I would like to link two sentences using so that.

He is trying to improve his language skills. He doesn't want to have a problem in communicating with others at work in the future.

What tense should be used for the sentence coming after so that? present or future? In other words, which of the following sentences are grammatically correct?

1) He is trying to improve his language skills so that he doesn't have a problem in communicating with others at work in the future.

2) He is trying to improve his language skills so that he won't have a problem in communicating with others at work in the future.

This question came from our site for linguists, etymologists, and serious English language enthusiasts.

  • He does not / doesn't have a problem (as opposed to I don't have a problem). – FumbleFingers Aug 29 '18 at 13:57
