English Grammar


Future tense: shall/will

Will someone explain to me why Gymglish considers future tense should be conjugated excusively with "will" at all persons including the first I?
ex: I shall go shopping this afternoon.
Why is it wrong to say so?
1. This form with shall, is indeed used in recent books an can also be heard in streets and restaurants and other places...
2. What is left to emphasize the "shall" if it is not used any more.
ex:Ho yes mother I will wether you want it or not!




I tried to ask Gymglish who seems to know only machines, programs, of course always perfect, and ignores individual submitted to theses machines and programs.


Thank you

  • My grammar for contemporary English says that in southern British English the shall-forms are used beside the will-forms.
