    "I'll have a check" and "I'll check it"

    Hi Everybody,

    I'd like to know if there is any different between "I'll have a check" and "I'll check it.

    Thanks.

    Possibly. Context?

    "I'll have a check" is maybe like "I will must a check." but I don't know it on 100%.

    "I'll have a check" and "I'll check it" probably mean the same thing. ("I will must a check" is not something I recognize.)

    for the obligations in the past, use "had to"

    The former sounds like a more British formulation.

    As an American, I would say "I'll check it out."

    Or "I'll check into it."
