besoin de/ to need to topic

I find this lesson utterly indecipherable, poorly explained and VERY frustrating. With material like this, I begin to wonder why I spent the money or the time.  

 Sometimes it's envie de, sometimes not.  the explanations supplied DO NOT SUFFICIENTLY ANSWER THE REASONING AS TO WHICH ANSWERS ARE APPROPRIATE.  I'll just eventually memorize the "correct" answers and move on.  Stupid way to learn grammar.

Hi D

I'm sorry this lesson caused you so much frustration. Thank you for letting us know so we can address that. We constantly rewrite our content to make it clearer based on student feedback so we really appreciate it.

I'll take a look and speak with the language team about what we can do to make this clearer. It can be hard for French native teachers to get into the mind of someone who's learning French from an English perspective so we'll look at this again with some of our English linguists too in order to work out how best to restructure and explain it.

We'll let you know when we update it and ask you if it's fixed the issue or needs more work to get it right.

Thanks again, Gruff
