    Either you will apologize

    Does this make sense? I translated from a Korean sentence, and "you" here seem to have made a mistake.

    1. Either you will apologize or I will never talk to you.

    I would personally drop "will" and add "again" at the end of the sentence. IMO, "you" is correct: "you" have done something which hurt "me" and I want you to apologize for that; or else "you" have done something wrong (to someone else, or in school), and I want you to apologize for that. If you don't apologize, "I will never talk to you again".

    Re: Either you will apologize

    You can drop "You" and even "Either".

    Either apologise or I'll never talk to you again.
    Apologise or I'll never talk to you again.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.
