    I shall/we shall still in use?

    Do you still use "shall" to form the Future simple tense?

    "We shall go"

    "I shall go"

    Re: I shall/we shall still in use?

    I do, quite often.

    I expect it's more common in the interrogative form:

    'Shall we go to the seaside today?'

    I ment to say that something will happen in the future.

    "I shall go there"

    OR

    "I will go there"

    Re: I shall/we shall still in use?

    It is not commonly used in AmE, except in questions where we are seeking assent:
    "Shall we have lunch now?"
