I did the same. The only difference is passive voice. Il faut may or may not be passive, depending on the context.
I wrote, "He needs gloves", and it didn't work. Either tell me why or fix this problem.
When a specific person needs something in french you would use "avoir besoin de". So "He needs gloves" would be "Il a besoin des gants"
"Il faut" is more general as someone said below its closer to "Gloves are necessary"
I get that "Il faut des gants" means "Gloves are needed" but please tell me how would "He needs gloves" be written in French? Thanks in advance.
Unless this is simly a fixed saying, I don't see why 'he needs gloves' is wrong--or how else that could be said
Okay it's fine that "He needs gloves" is rejected, but "One needs gloves" for sure shouldn't be. I mean, it's even what is suggested in the hint, for Pete's sake.
One wouldn't say "One needs gloves." or "Gloves are needed" in English, it sounds awkward and robotic. "We need gloves." is more commonly used. There should be a few correct answers here.
One would say, "One needs gloves," or "Gloves are needed," in English. It is more proper, just not everyday usage.
I am pretty surprised that anyone would replace "once needs gloves" with "we need gloves". May be "gloves are necessary." It's very cold in the Canadian winter" "Yes, gloves are necessary".
I simply find it hard to believe that anyone would speak the words "gloves are necessary" or "one needs gloves" in any context, even in Canada. It's not wrong it's just not conversational. Conversationally, you would use "we" to refer to anyone/everyone living in the region experiencing cold weather. Now, you could argue that in the context of a language-learning application, "we" starts making it too complicated and confusing for students. That's probably true but no one has pointed that out. Now go ahead and thumbs down this comment too.
I put "he needs gloves" but was corrected as "we need gloves." I don't understand this one.
I write "He needs gloves." But not accepted. Why don't they fix it after many comments? They don't care????
"One needs gloves" is in the impersonal, as is "il faut". "One needs" is also given as a translation of "il faut."
