    shall/should

    Hi

    Are these two words interchangeable?
    Can I always use one or the other without any difference in meaning?
    I suppose that shall is very formal?

    Re: shall/should

    You shall not kill !
    You should not kill!

    I should help her.
    I shall help her .

    Let's dance shan't we!
    We should dance.

    Try to give a short rephrasing for each pair of examples to find out whether shall and should are interchangeable .
