How will/shall we get there?


Senior Member
Hi, everyone!
Here is a dialogue.
A: Where's the zoo? Is it far?
B: No. It's north of the bus station, about three kilometres away.
A: How will we get there?
B: We'll get there by bus.

Q: Can we use 'will' in questions with 'I/we'? And what's the difference between 'will we' and 'shall we'?

    When I was at school I learned that I and we required shall while second and third persons took will. That was a long time ago. These days I'm surprised when I hear shall used.
