    should for expectaion

    When ' should' is used to express expecation, can I translate the sentence as follows?



    She should be in Seoul by now.--> she is supposed to be in Seoul now.

    She should hve arrived in Seoul last week--> She was supposed to be in Seoul last week.

    She should be in Seoul by next week-> She will be supposed to be in Seoul by next week.

    Re: should for expectaion

    No. None of those express expectation (do try to spell the word right).

    She should be in Seoul by now.--> I expect she has arrived in Seoul by now.

    She should have arrived in Seoul last week--> I expect she arrived in Seoul last week.

    She should be in Seoul by next week-> I expect she will be in Seoul by next week.
