English Grammar in Use (7) Will

6:46 PM / Posted by 2easy_Team /


(A) We use will (’ll) when we decide to do something at the time of speaking :

- Oh, I’ve left the door open. I’ll go and shut it.

- What would you like to drink?’ ‘I’ll have tea, please.’

- Did you phone Ann?’ ‘Oh no, I forgot it. I’ll do it now.’

- I’m too tired to walk home. I think I’ll get a taxi.

The negative of will is won't (or will not):

Receptionist : I'm afraid Mr Wood can't see you until 4 o'clock.

You : Oh, in that case I won't wait.

We often use I think I'll ……or I don' think I'll…when we decide to do something:

- I think I'll stay at home this evening.

- I don't think I'll go out tonight. I'm too tired.

(B) We often use will in these situations:

Offering to do something:

- That bag looks heavy. I'll help you with it.

(not ' I help ')

- ' I need some money' . ' Don't worry. I'll lend you some.'

Agreeing or refusing to do something:

- A: You know that book I lent you ? Can I have it back?

B: Of course. I'll bring it back this afternoon.

(not ' I bring')

- I've asked John to help me but he won't

- The car won't start. ( = the car ' refuses ' to start)

Promising to do something:

- Than you for lending me the money. I'll pay you back on Friday.

(not ' I pay')

- I won't tell Tom what you said. I promise.

- I promise I'll phone you as soon as I arrive.

Asking someone to do something (Will you…?):

- Will you shut the door, please?

- Will you please be quiet? I'm trying to concentrate.
