‘What would you like to drink?’ ‘I’ll have a cup of coffee, please.’
We use I’ll ( I will ) when we have just decided to do something. When we say ‘I ‘ll do something’ , we actually announce our decision.
CONTRACTIONS: I will – I’ll
I will not – I won’t
1.I have left the window open. I’ll just go and close it.’
2.‘What would you like to drink?’ ‘I’ll have a lemonade, please.’
3.‘Did you call Elisabeth?’ ‘I’ll call her now.’
We cannot use the Present Simple in the following sentences:
It is NOT correct to say : ‘I go and close the window.
CORRECT : I’ll go and close the window.
The negative of ‘ I will” is ‘I won’t.
Example. I understand you’re busy so I won’t stay long.
RULE! We DON’T use ‘will’ for something we decided before. Example . I am not going on holiday next week. Are you coming with us ?
Shall I…?/Shall we…?
‘ Shall ‘ is mostly used in the questions . We use ‘Shall I…?/Shall we…?’ to ask somebody’s opinion(especially in offers or suggestions).
1. Shall I open the door? (=Do you want me to open the door?)
2. I lost all my documents. What shall I do?(=What do you advice me to do?)
COMPARE ! Shall I…? and will you…?
Shall I close the window? (= Do you want me to to close it?)
Will you open the door? (= I want you to open it.)
