My answer was "We should work here" and it was not accepted either.


"Мусимо" means "must" and not "should."

It depends


"We need to" and "We must " are synonymous, aren't they? If not, what is the difference?

"We must" and "we have to" are synonyms. "We need to" is a bit different.

    Well, in English we use them differently.

    • Must for a personal obligation. We must work here, because we need the money.
    • Have to for an obligation from an authority. We have to work here, because the boss said so.

    The negative forms have very different meanings.

    • Must not it is prohibited
    • Not have to absence of obligation
