je dois apprendre le français=I should learn frenchwhat is the difference between those sentences?
Je dois= I must
Je devrais= I should / I ought to
Very different meanings just as in English.
In the present tense, (devoir) is closer to English must/need to/have to - a strong imperative and likely to happen; and in the conditional, closer to English should, less imperative with a lesser certainty of proceeding. See https://www.lawlessfrench.com/grammar/devoir-lesson/
