  2. Other subjects – will

NOTE: According to modern English rule, we can use WILL with I and WE also. It means if we do not use SHALL, it would not be considered as a grammatical mistakes.

NOTE:   In this tense, we also use ending time of the action we do. To show ending time, we use “BY (which means almost)” and it doesn’t matter whether the time is point of time or period of time.
