    It can be
    Why don't you talk?
    What would happen if we all keep quiet?
    молчать can be to stay calm, to remain silent, to be quiet, not to talk, to keep in secret and many many other things.

    Providing context might help.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Is the sentence "What will happen if we'll be quiet?" correct?
    Shouldn't it be "What will happen if we are quiet?"
    Please correct my mistakes if you can, especially article usage.

    Both are adequate, slight contextual difference

    What happens if we will be quiet? (they are not quiet now)
    what happens if we are quiet? (hypothetical, they could be quiet now or not)

    Erm, I think this sounds retarded, or at the very least, you'd have to get the intonation right if you wanted this to sound ok.

    Why is it retarded?

    It's better to say "what happens if we are quiet?"

    Technically, in formal English, when describing possible future events, you should use the present form of the verb after if:

    I'll be happy if I catch a ride tomorrow,

    But in the North America this rule is not always followed, particularly in speech. I do too feel uncomfortable saying "I'll be happy if I will catch a ride tomorrow", because that's not the way I've been taught.

    I also hear "if I was you" (instead of formally correct "If I were you"), etc.
    I've got a TV, and I'm not afraid to use it

    Thanks.

    Then it's not retarded, it's just slightly incorrect. That's why I asked.

    Actually, "What will happen if we will keep quiet" does sound "retarded"

    All right, I got it as your terminology.

    yeah, repeating "will" sounds weird to me. Of course, I myself would say What would happen if we be quiet? Is that subjunctive or what?

    Ты действительно говоришь так? Ты преподаватель английского языка, что-ли?

    Так же можно сказать "What would happen should we be quiet"
