How to Express Obligation in Spanish
Talking about the things you have to do is a topic you will encounter without even thinking about it. In today´s video, Cody and you will learn how to talk about your obligations using three simple expressions.
The first way to express obligation in Spanish would be saying “tener que” + verb in infinitive (-ar, -er, -ir). This translates as “To have to…”, obviously you will need to conjugate the verb depending on who is having to do the action.
The second way to express obligation is using the verb “deber”. You will conjugate it and again, use a verb in infinitive. This one could translate as “I must…”
The last one and easiest one is saying “Hay que” plus a verb in infinitive. It is an impersonal way to say it, meaning there is no subject, therefore, no conjugations are necessary! yeyyyy!!
