If there is no choice and no past tense you MUST use:
1. must
2. have to
3. need to
ans=must…..howz it???i don’t get it..may u explain it?

Profile photo of engstud engstud

    engstud, If you don’t mind, allow me to give my opinion. If we have no choice, we can say “must” or “have to”. But,of the two words, only “have to” has a past form, that is “had to”.
    I hope that Mr.James will correct me if I’m wrong.

    Profile photo of Rifai Rifai

      the correct answer is MUST.

      Profile photo of andreiaoliveira40 andreiaoliveira40

        Both answers are correct.However, here the question is what generally (not formally) should use. Must is formal.

thanks for your concern, it is very benificial.


I am very happy to know about have to and need to. But I have 1 question, what different between must not and don’t have to?

Hello James,
Thank you for this lesson, but I need to ask you about MUST. I can’t see the difference between ‘Must and have to’ or ‘must and need to’.
Could you be so kind to explain that? Thank you!
Happy Valentine’s Day!

Hi James. I have watched your lessons many times. They brought many benefits for me. there is one thing that I want to share with EngVid : We should got more lessons in comparing and contrasting how diffirent they are when we learn some similar words, like: immigrate vs emigrate, delay vs postpone, so on…

Minh Tâm - From VietNam

why doesn’t anybody respond to our comments?

azza ramzy

I would like to know something, which one do we “need”/ “have” to use in a question? for instance something that is not a benefit for me neither an urgency because I will have a consequence… Ex: Do I need/have to fill the application form up twicr? Do I need/have to buy the uniform? …
and now: you have/need to answer me? :)
many thanks, you are always really useful


I am also a teacher in English. I was surfing the internet looking for some motivating strategies to enable my students understand clearly and deeply what I’m talking in front of them.I saw this cite and I need to say “awesome”. I have to admire your style James because that is my style too, only, I am a Filipino.

And must, When do we use? When we have to obey the laws or rules?


Hello Mr James! In my opinion you are usually even often explain your lesson in orally but its good but I think it will be better to have more examples in written form its just my opinion… so cause a lot of students can`t understand your quick speech….thanks!

Hi James,
Could you explain the difference between “within” and “inside”? I know this isn’t part of this topic but I don’t know where to post my doubts.


Profile photo of georgejolema georgejolema

It’s kind of emergency situations! You have to update your lecture more frequently! That’s because many viewers are dying to watch your lecture and learn something good from you. Of course, I’m a big fan of you, too! I need to study English from you becauswe I can get a wide range of beneficial information from you!

Hi, I’m a korea student, and I’ve been wathcing your videoclips since last year. I think all of your lectures are very beneficial for me to enhance my English. I hope that your lecture will keep coming up. By the way, I just wonder how can I improve my writing skills in English. What’s the best way to advance my English writing skills!!!I’m quite freaking out because of my poor writing skills! Whenever I took a written examination in English, I just got a very low score and I’ve been very unsatisfied with my bad grades! Please help me out~! Could you tell me how to fix this problem? I’d appreciate it if you could tell me the specific way to enhance my writing skills. Thanks again. All the best to you, John!


I’m an EOT and your lessons are very helpful for me. Thanks!

Hi James:

Could you please explain the difference between Might have and Might. Both are past tense of May, for example They were not at home, they might have gone to park.we used here have plus P.P. what if I say in simple past for example they were not at home they might go to the park? Notice verb is in base form? What would be differnce between these two sentence. Why we used Have plus P.P in first one?

Kindly help



Is must not the same as don’t have to?
I’ve chosen NO =D (I need to look up somewhere the difference)
In sum, thanks for wonderful and useful video!
Wish you all the best and every happiness =)


sorry for mess, to be precise i replyed YES it’s the same. But it turned out different =)


Thank you James, you are a good teacher.


Dear James, thanks a lot for your patience. I do appreciate you helping us with learning English. I hope I used “gerundium” correctly :-)

Repetition is the mother of learning.
I’ve repeated it twice, at first, the glance of an eye, it may look like an easy thing, but when you’ve dive in, its not anymore easy as it seems..
that’s why I HAVE to repeat it, in order for me to learn. and I NEED to learn it because I NEED to become a GOOD ENGLISH SPEAKER :)

James, so how would you explain the main title of the movie: “We need to talk about Kevin” ? Where is the benefit of “need”? Generally the whole situation in that family was bad and it should be discussed before Kevin had killed half of his class. It was rather urgency than benefit…. Best wishes from Poland.

Profile photo of angardiobel angardiobel

    Three times to understand the lesson, specially the second question with “must”, it’s clear that the obligation is stronger than “have to”, but I thought that the past of “must” was “should”, but I don’t know why “must” doesn’t have past.

2. If there is no choice and no past tense you MUST use:
-have to
-need to

I answered “have to” but the correct answer ” must”

Must- in the present and past the same! “must” and have to both means
“Rule and you have no other choices”
Your test is not correct :(

Profile photo of lalamirzayeva1985 lalamirzayeva1985

    ‘Have to’ always have choice/opition, opinion/ adviced.
    I recommend Ronnie’s class maybe it help you. >youtube.com – English Grammar: Must & Have to engvid with Roonie.
