Hi,

Thank you for pointing out the mistake, which we'll put right.

Talk to means have a conversation with, which you can't use with the noun future. You need talk about because it means speak on the subject of.

I answered the question correctly, but I would like to know the difference between "shall and will", if possible. Thanks.
