Dear Alma| “Should”, “Shall” and “Will”

Dear Alma
Dear Alma,

I’m an NTT teaching writing, and I could use some help with a lesson on the conditional mode  for my students.  Can you give me a good example of the differences between “should,” shall” and “will”?   Thanks, Alma!


Dear Stumped,

I should understand what you’re talking about. I shall support the NTT union drive. It will make a huge difference in the lives of the faculty and students at UIUC.
