Use: · Use will/won’t + infinitive for future predictions. ( She’ ll be tired. ) Decisions I won’t have the fish, I’ll have the steak. We ’ll take the 6.30 train. Offers I’ ll help you with your homework. Shall I open the window? Promises I’ ll always love you. I won’t tell anyone.
USE: The future of there is/are = there will be. The future of can = be able to + infinitive. NOT I’ll can. We often use I think/don’t think..+will … I think he’ll fail the exam. I don’t think he’ll pass the exam. NOT I think he won’t pass.
USE: Sometimes in positive sentences with I and We, use Shall ( not will), but this is very formal ( for example, in a business letter). I shall write to you when I have studied your case.
USE: Use Shall I…? or Shall we…? When an offer is a question. Shall I pay? Shall we call you tonight at 7.00?

Instead of saying “going to”, we can say “ (be) gonna …”, but that last is more informal.
