Finished watching the lesson, now it’s time to take a test to see how much have you learned from this lesson.
‘Will’ and ‘Shall’ are used in the future tense. But, at times it is confusing when we have to use them to make a question. In this lesson, you will learn when to use ‘shall’ and ‘will’ to make a question.
Shall I/We: is used when the person who asks the question is offering to do something.
- Example: Shall we wait for you? (we are offering to the action of waiting. If ‘will we’ is used, it would not make sense)
- Example: Shall we invite him to the party?
- Example: Shall I listen to his advice?
- Example: Shall I send you a piece of cake?
Using ‘will’ in the above questions would not make complete sense.
Will I/We: is used when you ask general questions, where you are not initiating an action or offering to do something:
- Example: Will I get a call from him?
- Example: Will we receive an invitation for the party?
- Example: ill I ever know the truth?
- Example: Will I recover soon from the viral?
