Let's look at some examples
To predict a future event:
I will marry my girlfriend this year.
To express willingness:
I’ll help you decorate your house, next month.
With I or We, to express a spontaneous decision:
I’ll pay for your holiday this Summer.
In the negative form, to express unwillingness:
I won’t decide until next week.
With I in the interrogative form using “shall”, to make an offer:
Shall we go to the gym every Monday?
With you, to give orders:
You will do exactly as I ask.
In modern English will is preferred to shall.
Shall is mainly used with I and we to make an offer or suggestion, or to ask for advice.
With you in the interrogative form, to give an invitation:
Will you marry me?
