Q: How do you say this in English (US)? ''We shall probably go to Turkey in July.''
A: "We will probably go to Turkey in July " is more natural

"Shall" and "probably" contradict because "probably" means (might) and "shall" is a for sure thing.

Here some examples: "we shall go to turkey in July"( meaning you will go to turkey, and you know for sure)

"We will probably go to turkey in July"(you know you might go but you don't know for sure)

Also we don't usually use "shall" in this sort of sentence in everyday use because "shall" is a very proper sounding word. So the changing out the "shall" with "will" makes it more native :)

If you want examples where the word "shall" would be I could give you some :)

Q: How do you say this in English (UK)? did you come in Turkey ?
A: This doesn't sound natural.
