 I've just read in a dictionary that we have to use "be sure to" to say that something is certain to happen. take a look in the following:


•If you work hard you are sure to succeed.

 

I know the sentence above is grammaticaly correct, what really gets me, though, is that the same dictionary says that I can't say it as it is in the following:

 

•If you work hard you will surely succed.

 

I'm positive I'd preffer the latter version if I was to say it.

 

Let me know your positions on this.

 

Thanks in advance.
