Common English conversation – "SHOULD"

Last week we practiced giving our opinion.  The word ‘should’ is common when we want to give our opinion or make a suggestion. We are saying that something is good or the right thing to do.


“It may rain this afternoon. You should take an umbrella.”



“Wow it’s already 1:00 am. I should go to bed.”


If we ask someone’s opinion or idea we will put ‘should’ at the beginning of the sentence to make it a question.


“There will be many people coming to our party. Should we buy more wine?”


* Remember should is only a suggestion, it is not as strong as must or have to.

“We have to buy more wine, I don’t want to run out again like last time.”
“You can never have too much wine!”
