    Hi everyone, I have a question that quite stupid I think. Does anybody think that sometime we have to say “You must do that” not “You should do that”, which means in a situation that I need to say ” You must do that” and don’t want the listener understand what i’m saying”You should do that” not “you must do that”. thank you so much everyone!
