Have girlfriend tried just using the translator? This is nice basic. The civilization for need to is deber, you would conjugate it in first person, and then follow it through the infinitive, in this case, come go. Therefore, the price is, Yo debo ir a la escuela hoy.

As much as ns agree with gfgfgfgs that debería sounds far better coming native a student, however how would a indigenous speaker in reality say have to in everyday conversation.

I.eNon- native- Debería tocar yo el piano?

Maybe a native would say- Debo tocar yo el piano? and maybe they still average the exact same thing. I think both controversy menos have a precious point

Debes ir a la escuela..

Still, always good advice (unless the human being is yes, really upset and also has a bunch that guns) - rogspax, ENE 31, 2013
