    The future using will or shall
    The simple future
    Will
    'Will' does not change its form.
    I, you, he, she, it, we, they

    will
    'Will' is often shortened to ...'ll.
    I'll, you'll, he'll, she'll, we'll, they'll - and even (although it's not good English) it'll

    The negative of 'will' is 'will not' - often shortened to won't
    I, you, he, she, it, we, they
    will not / won't
    For example
    + -
    I will go. I'll go. I won't go
    You will go. You'll go. You won't go
    He will go. He'll go. He won't go
    She will go. She'll go. She won't go
    It will go. It'll go. It won't go
    We will go. We'll go. We won't go
    They will go. They'll go. They won't go

    !Note! 'Will' on its own is not used for things we have arranged or decided to do.

    "Will" is usually used in these situations:-
    Volunteering to do something: (The phone is ringing). I'll answer it.
    Promising to do something:
    (A friend is leaving) I'll visit you in the summer.
    Deciding to do something :
    (Your car won't start) I'll buy a new car.
    Ordering someone to do something:
    (Your child won't do their homework) You'll do your homework now!
    Predicting something will happen
    (Winter is coming) I think it will be a cold winter.

    Sometimes you can use 'will' as a threat.
    Don't move or I'll shoot!



    !Note! 'Will' is often used with think - "I think I will ..."

    Positive (+)

    Negative (-)
    Statement
    I'll do my homework now. I won't do my homework later.
    Statement

    Question (using will)

    Shall
    'Shall' does not change its form.
    I, you, he, she, it, we, they

    shall.
    'Shall' is also shortened to ...'ll.
    I'll, you'll, he'll, she'll, we'll, they'll - and even (although it's not good English) it'll

    The negative of 'shall' is 'shall not' - often shortened to shan't

    shall not / shan't



    In British English 'Shall' is often used instead of will in the first person (I/we).
    I / We will
    =
    I / We shall
    I shall be at work on time.
    = I will be at work on time.
    We shall win the competition.
    = We will win the competition.
    They shall not pass!

    =

    They shan't pass!

    'Shall' is also often used in the first person (I/we) in questions when asking for permission, making suggestions, making an offer or asking for advice.
    Shall I do that?
    Shall we go home?
