Question 1 of 10

‘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?
