    Re: Shall or Will?

    Hi everyone,
    On my side I think 'Will' will be correct in this sentence.
    But could you please give the difference between the two words (Shall and Will)?


    Thanks.

    dear,

    To my point of view, shall can be used only in this exceptional case
    with the subject pronoun better than will which is preferably used other subject pronouns eccept we. Ipersonally prefer using should inthis case instead. thank you very much.

    dear friends,

    There is a slight difference between " offers" , 'requests' and advice.
    In this case , it's suitable to use shall with the pronoun " I " better than
    will .Do you agree on this? With best wishes.

    Re: Shall or Will?

    You suggest using 'should', which is fine- in American English, it has largely replaced 'shall', but 'shall' is often used in such questions in British English.
