 Will/ Shall + I / We/ You/ They/ Common Noun/ Proper Noun + be + verb (1st form) with ‘ing’ + object (optional)?

Difference between ‘Will’ and ‘Shall’

The earlier rule of the American English was that ‘shall’ was used with the first person rules of tenses whereas ‘will’ was used with second and third person rules of tenses.

For example:

1) I shall be going to the gym tomorrow.

2) They will be leaving for Delhi tomorrow.

But when a strong determination for something is to be expressed the use of ‘will’ and ‘shall’ is reversed.

For example:

1) I will not go to the market.

2) You shall go to the party.

Although use of both these is interchangeable but ‘Shall’ is now used very rarely as ‘will’ has replaced its use.
