просмотрел немало видео с Джеймсом... и обязан произнести, он одинешенек из более харизматичных; будто бы этак произнести я учителей, - кто ведет видео уроки. Толи наружный облик, толи харизма, однако его уроки вечно слушаются "на ура".
i`ve had been sow ,many video with James. and want to tell that he is the mostly charismatic teacher who conducts the lesson.
i don`t kwon that is the charisma or appearance? but i`m always look him lesson wery well.
A wildly inaccurate spreading of misinformation. "Have to" means you have no choice. "Must" means your are duty bound. If something "must be true" we can deduce that it is true. We can also say "it has to be true" in EXACTLY the same way. It has nothing to do with belief versus facts. As far as emotions being stronger than facts- oh dear- I detect some thinly veiled religious undertones.
my English is worse so i have to learning very much, i believe that i can do it, Sure when i watched your video i promise continous every day and practice . finally i glad if you make many video which helpful the same. Thanh you so much
good explanation, but in my opinion there is some important content missing, e.g. details of the usage of these both modals. watched the video and tried a pre-test for my exam and i didn't know what to do, ~50 percent of my answers were wrong, so i HAD TO watch a other video, to understand it and then my answers were much better.
Your explanation is not quite correct. You use "must" when it is your decision (based on facts, belief, or something else - doesn't matter), i.e., it is important for you, but you have a choice not to do it. You use "have to" when circumstances make you do something-you don't have a choice not to do it.
Must is used to express what the speaker thinks. Have to us used because it is something necessary, as law or a rule.
In the US, I have to get a driver's license before I can drive by myself.
I must cook tonight before the guests arrive. (not a rule or law)
He said must is stronger than have to but I think he confused the two in the end.
I think that you are wrong. I was taught that must is used wheb something is an obligation so you are no able to decide not to do it and have to you are not obliged to do it. so I think that must have a stronger obligation than have to.
What about I have to finish stuffing my face or I have to get drunk this weekend? Thats factual as well? I must is on its way to becoming archaic. Native speakers are using it less and less. And what about have got to?
Hi James, I appreciate your explanation, however... from observing real-life situations many times, must and have to are interchangeable. Fact / Belief - good contrast... but not enough scope: how about: Parent: "You must be home by 11 tonight." Kid: Can't stay longer. I have to / must be home by 11". In actual terms I only tell my Ss: must no "to" - following... ;-). Thanks again for the videos.
Hi James, i have a question for you. What is/are different between "have to" and "have got to". I watched some video from utube's user but made confused than understanding tho your point different then others i like it. Here are example. Drivers have got to get a license to drive a car in the US. (necessity) 2. I have got to be at work by 8:30 AM (obligation) Can I use have to in these sentence? Thank you for video and giving time. Peace :-D
