When to use "Shall" and "Will"?

The traditional rule is that 'shall' is used with first person pronouns (i.e. I and we) to form the future tense, while 'will' is used with second and third person forms (i.e. you, he, she, it, they). For example: - I shall be late. - They will not have enough food. However, when it comes to expressing a strong determination to do something, the roles are reversed: will is used with the first person, and shall with the second and third. For example: - I will not tolerate such behaviour. - You shall go to the ball! In practice, though, the two words are used more or less interchangeably, and this is now an acceptable part of standard British and American English; however, the word shall is now seldom used in any normal context in American English.

Shall Mainly used in American English to ask questions politely (it has more usages in British English) . For the future tense, will is more frequently used in American English than shall. Shall we dance? Shall I go now? Let's drink, shall we? Often used in formal settings to deliver obligation or requirement: You shall abide by the law. There shall be no trespassing on this property. Students shall not enter this room.

Well, in traditional British grammar, the rule is that will should only be used with second and third person pronouns (you; he, she, it, they). With first person pronouns (I and we), the 'correct' verb to talk about the future is shall.
