A police officer found a perfect hiding place for watching for speeding motorists.

One day, the officer was amazed when everyone was under the speed limit, so he investigated and found the problem.

A 10 years old boy was standing on the side of the road with a huge hand painted sign which said Radar Trap Ahead.

A little more investigative work led the officer to the boys accomplice: another boy about 100 yards beyond the radar trap with a sign reading TIPS and a bucket at his feet full of change.

HAND OUT 8 (68) Discipline: English as a foreign language Credits: 2 Intermediate level Practical lesson Lexical theme: National identity Grammar: Must, have to, should (obligation) Teacher: assistant professor Sariyeva Aida Kamzayevna

Explain this proverb and give examples Every country has its customs

Warming up. Which do you think would be better in the situations bellow: making travel agreements online or booking through travel agents?

  • a package holiday for a family
  • a long distance flight to visit family
  • a train to another town


GRAMMAR COMMENT: must, have to, should (obligation)


Must suggests personal obligation - its necessary, because the speaker thinks it is. Have to suggests external obligation - its necessary because of a rule or an arrangement. Compare: I must buy a new shirt- this one is too old now.(Its my own decision) I have to wear a shirt and a tie at work (Its the rule at this company). Have to is a normal verb and it exists in all tenses. No obligation/necessity: dont have to. You dont have to pay for the tickets. They are free. Prohibition: mustnt (+infinitive). You mustnt eat that cake-its for birthday. Shouldis not so strong as must and have to. We use it to say if we think something is the right or wrong thing to do: You should take warm clothes. It might be cold at night there.
