Again, context is everything…

… isn’t it?

Avoir besoin de. Avoir envie de. Devoir. I try guessing by picking one or two or three depending on the activity and invariably get it wrong. I think your explanatory text needs more clarification, especially in the use of avoir envie de as an option for ‘need to’. Thank you for your time.

Bonjour Richard,

Chris is spot on here: "Needs to" apparent consistency

We've looked at the lesson on "avoir envie de" and we'll be reviewing it so as to avoid this confusion. 

I hope this is helpful.

Bonne journée !

Bonjour all,

This lesson (and especially the part on ""needing to go to the toilet" has been amended/updated. ;-)

Bonne journée !
