Did you just say breakfast is delicious?
Hi, everyone. This is Rosa Akino. Let’s have another great lesson.
Hi, everyone. Chris McVay here. Today, you must pay close attention to everything we say.
You must finish the report on time.
Chris, Rosa, what kind of impression do you get from this sentence?
Well, you definitely feel a very heavy pressure like something that’s unavoidable, right, Chris?
Yeah, I think that’s the key this pressure, right. In this case you noticed it’s as a newcomer, so It’s not pressure from a strict rule anything like that. It’s just it’s normal as a newcomer, but you do want to make a good impression. So you have this pressure to do everything just right.
Rosa, Chris, is it strange that must doesn’t have a past form?
I’ve never thought about it, actually.
Yeah, I mean, it’s a kind of mystery, but basically must has come to refer to a here and now type of situation, and here and now type of pressure.
That makes sense.
Yeah, Does that make sense?
Could you give me some alternatives for scrumptious?
Well, you could say, It’s utterly tasty.
Or, it’s really dilicous.
Hey, Rosa. We must go for lunch before the cafeteria closes.
Oh, you’re right. Let’s go.
