‘Shall’ or ‘will’?
The traditional rule in standard British English is that shall is used with first person pronouns (i.e. I and we) to form the future tense, while will is used with second and third person forms (i.e. you, he, she, it, they). For example:
I shall be late.
They will not have enough food.
I will not tolerate such behaviour.
You shall go to the ball!
