CONTRACTIONS: ‘ll= willwon’t= will not


· Use will/won’t + infinitive for future predictions.

( She’ ll be tired. )


  • The future of there is/are = there will be.

  • The future of can =be able to + infinitive. NOT I’ll can.

  • We often use I think/don’t think ..+will…

    I think he’ll fail the exam. I don’t think he’ll pass the exam. NOT I think he won’t pass.


  • Sometimes in positive sentences with I and We , use Shall ( not will), but this is very formal ( for example, in a business letter).

    I shall write to you when I have studied your case.


  • Use Shall I…? or Shall we…? When an offer is a question.

    Shall I pay?

    Shall we call you tonight at 7.00?
