look up any word, like bae:
 
1.
A word which, like whom, has come to be thought of as overly formal and stuffy in American speech. In current use, it indicates a very strong intention or will to do something.

Traditionally, shall is used as an auxilliary to form the future tense for the first person: ("I" and "we")

I shall go
you will go
he/she/it will go
we shall go
they will go

Negative: shall not, contracted as shan't.
This service was atrocious! We shan't be coming back here again!
