1. J’ai besoin d’aller faire les courses avant le dîner and
2. Je dois aller faire les courses avant dîner
I understand that in 1. the noun is used and in 2. the verb but in 2. could you also say
Je dois aller faire les courses avant le dîner ?
I’m asking because my mind translates 2. as - i need to go shopping before dining.
I can't see anything wrong with your logic.
1) You have need to go food shopping before the evening meal. (noun)
2) You have to go food shopping before dining. (verb)
Yes, you can say 'je dois aller faire les courses avant le dîner'.
