Have to / don't have to
Sometimes in life there are obligations or rules. There are things which you do not have a choice in, like wearing a uniform at school, for example. One structure we use to talk about these rules is have to. This programme is all about have to and its negative form, don't have to. Don't have to is used when there is no obligation to do something.
Today we challenge Tomomi from Japan to make correct sentences using this grammar.
Listen to the programme!
We use 'have to' to talk about things we must do, things we are obliged to do.
We use 'don't have to' to talk about things we have a choice about, things we aren't obliged to do.
