Grammar lesson – shall

Americans and Canadians do not use shall very often, but it is common in Australia, New Zealand, and the UK.

We can use it to make offers and suggestions and to ask for advice, usually at the beginning of a sentence.

Shall I turn the TV on?”

Shall we start the meeting?”

Shall I invite Rob to dinner?”

The negative of shall is shall not.

“We shall not ever offer to help them again.”
