- For Teachers
I don't think that in AE we would even use should in that context.
In BE, you see 'shall' replace 'will' and 'should' replace 'would', but it is almost exclusively found in very formal writing.
hi Tdol teacher:Originally Posted by tdol
so are you saying that both should and would are the same in the context?
I think he means that they mean the same thing, but they are used in different contexts.
thanks Ronbee. :o :oOriginally Posted by RonBee
You're quite welcome.
Ron's right- 'I should like' would usuallly be formal.
thanks Tdol too. :oOriginally Posted by tdol
