I'm confused by: "Tu ne devrais pas leur faire confiance." In the present, wouldn't it be "Tu ne dois pas leur faire confiance.", that is:
You must not / shouldn't trust them. So what does using the imparfait do, and how is the meaning using devrais different from using dois?
This question relates to:French lesson "Faire confiance (à) = To trust"

Hi Carol, devrais is not the imperfect, it is actually present tense but present tense conditional.
devrais -- you should
The imperfect would be similar but without the "r": devais.
