Somebody say that "will" can only be used when the subjecs of the sentences are you, they,he, it.
"shall" can only be used when the subjects of the sentences are I, we.

Somebody say that when something will 100% happen ,we use shall no matter what the subjects are when something will 50% happen , we use will no matter what the subjects are.
ex. He may go to library tomorrow. = He will go to library tomorrow.

When I was in school back in the Middle Ages, we were taught that will is used for 2nd and 3rd person, shall for first person, the reverse when emphasis was sought. This was taught, but not necessarily observed.

[So when MacArthur said, "I shall return", he probably thought he was being emphatic; he should have said, "I will return".

Very few people make the distinction these days. I believe that the British still use shall for first person.

[The same distinction used to be made for would / should.]

I don't understand your sentences sorry!
Because I can't only understand simple sentence structures.
Sorry!
Could explain it to me one more time?
Many Thanks in Advance
Perhaps some terminology is confusing:

1st person = I; we

2nd person = you

3rd person = he, she, it; they
the reverse when emphasis was sought?
[So when MacArthur said, "I shall return", he probably thought he was being emphatic; he should have said, "I will return"?
I can understand the meaning of the sentences even after checking my dictionary.
Because of the complicated sentence structures.
Sorry
Students: Are you brave enough to let our tutors analyse your pronunciation?
Could anybody explain it to me again ?
