    Re: Which one is correct sentence? I shall or I will

    Both are correct in BrE, though the sentences needs to end with a full stop. 'Will' is far more common these days.

    Re: Which one is correct sentence? I shall or I will

    It's "correct" in American English, but I almost never hear "I shall."

    We do use "Shall we...?" at times, but as a declarative statement, "I shall..." is VERY rare.
    I'm not a teacher, but I write for a living. Please don't ask me about 2nd conditionals, but I'm a safe bet for what reads well in (American) English.
