## Expressing Obligation and Suggestions Video

Instructor Video: Expressing Obligations and Suggestions

In previous chapter, you have learned that चाहिए “need” is used to express the need. चाहिए “need” always takes subject with को.

For example:

• मुझे किताबें चाहिए | “I need books.”
• आपको क्या चाहिए ? “What do you need?”
• सब को पैसे चाहिए | “All needs money.”

However, when चाहिए “need” comes with verb, it expresses suggestion and obligation.

For example:

• आपको अपना काम करना चाहिए | “You should do your work.”
• सब को हिन्दी में बात करनी चाहिए | “All should converse in Hindi.”
• आपको अपने माता-पिता का आदर करना चाहिए | “You should/ought to respect your parents.”
• अब मुझे घर जाना चाहिए | “Now, I should go home.”

## Activities
