    Shall /will

    Hello teachers,
    I have heard people using the word will and Shall interchangebly.
    Is that correct technically?

    Thank you
    S

    Re: Shall /will

    Actually 'shall' is a combination of 'should' and 'will' and has the idea of something that needs to be done. It can sometimes be understood as a command:

    All students shall have their supplies with them and notebooks open at the beginning of class.

    Re: Shall /will

    The two words are not the same and have very different meanings:

    "Shall" is an instruction that says something MUST be done.

    "Will" is simply stating something that is due to happen.
