You'll make mistakes, everyone does

You’ll make mistakes, everyone does.

Question: 1) Why does the first part use future tense, and the second part used present tense? Do people say that?
2) Is it okay to say, “you’ll make mistakes, everyone will”? Does it sound weird?

Thank you!

  1. yes it’s correct.

  2. My best answer is: that’s just how English is, and this is one of the main grammatical problems that learners encounter. “You’ll make mistakes, everyone will” is ok but sounds a little strange, but “everyone does” is more common. I guess it would be considered a conditional sentence:

He’s specifically referring to the future in the first part. In the second part he is just stating a general fact. Everyone makes mistakes, therefore you, in the future, will also make mistakes.

By saying, “You’ll make mistakes, everyone does,” it’s like saying, “You will make mistakes. Everyone makes mistakes.” He is speaking from experience. He knows that everyone makes mistakes in the process of learning and he is reassuring his student that it is okay for him to make mistakes because we learn from our mistakes.

If he said, “You’ll make mistakes, everyone will,” that would be a very odd thing for an instructor to say because that would be like saying, “You will make mistakes. Everyone will make mistakes.” That would just sound like he is predicting that mistakes will be made but he has little or no empathy for the student or consideration for the learning process. It would not sound reassuring at all.
