Recursos

A veces puedes estar muy seguro de algo que suceder谩 o realizar谩s en el futuro. Expresa seguridad sobre una acci贸n futura de manera muy formal con 鈥淪hall鈥.

Expresando convicci贸n o responsabilidad

Si tienes una convicci贸n personal de algo que har谩s en el futuro, puedes expresarlo utilizando la palabra Shall.

Veamos algunos ejemplos: - Tomorrow, we shall begin the second draft of our conceptual model. - We shall not tolerate this sort of fowl behavior in the workplace again! - We shall meet again to discuss the details of this project. - We shall optimize the processes so that we can work more efficiently. - They would always say things like "I shall prepare the copies", and "shall we delegate roles?" (Ejemplo del roleplay)

La palabra shall es propia del ingl茅s Brit谩nico y muy utilizada. Pero practicamente no se utiliza en el ingl茅s Americano. Es recomendable evitarla, ya que se suele utilizar para bromas. En su lugar, utiliza "will" o "going to be" como has visto al comienzo del curso.

Tambi茅n es importante conocer este vocabulario para rendir ex谩menes internacionales como el IELTS.

Con este sencillo vocabulario, ya puedes expresar con seguridad o certeza esos hechos que ocurrir谩n en el futuro.
