  • Will vs shall in English

    This chapter will discuss the difference between the English verbs 'will' and 'shall'. These verbs are always used together with another verb. 

    Use of shall and will 

    'Shall' and 'will' are two English modal verbs. Both can be used for the future tense in English. 

    When to use will

    The auxiliary verb 'will' is used to form the future tense. It can express a determination, interrogative questions, options or a favour. 

    Subject Affirmative Negative Interrogative
    I will ... will not ... Will I ...?
    You will ... will not ... Will you ...?
    He, she, it will ... will not ...

    Will he, she, it ...?

    We will ... will not ...

    Will we ...?

    You will ... will not ...

    Will you ...?

    They will ... will not ... Will they ...?

    enlightenedThe negative form of 'will', can also be shortened to 'won't'. For example, I won't go to Spain this Summer. 

    Examples:

    • I will learn Spanish when I am in Spain. 
    • Will you have time to practice the presentation before the deadline?

    When to use shall

    The verb 'shall' is used to make a suggestion or give advice. The verb 'shall' is used in a formal way. 

    Examples:

    • I'm tired. Shall we go home?
    • I shall be there by 9 o'clock. 

    enlightenedThe verb 'shall' can only be used with the personal pronouns 'I' and 'we' when making a suggestion.
