Grammar: Should/Shouldn’t and Ought to/Ought not to.

Hey guys, it is time to learn Grammar!! Today, I am going to teach you how to use and the difference between should/should’t and Ought to/Ought not to.

  • Should or Shouldn’t: 

We use should/shouldn’t + VERB (infinitive without to) to give somebody advice, suggestions or say what you think is the right to do.

e.g You should eat more fruit.

e.g I shouldn’t (should not) eat red meat.

e.g. A. Should we go right now? B. Yes, we should.

* We often use I think you should.. or I do not think you should.. NOT I think you shouldn’t.


  • Ought to or Ought not to: You can use ought to/ought not to instead of should/shouldn’t,

i.e.. You ought to eat more fruit.

i.e.. I ought not to eat red meat.

  • The only difference is that OUGHT TO / OUGHT NOT TO is more formal. You must use it in a formal writing or to send an e-mail. In a conversation is better to use Should/ Shouldn’t. 

Being a English Teacher

Hey guys, how are you today? I will answer some questions that normally people make me about my experiences with English language and I hope that you enjoy it.


  • Why have I become a English teacher?

I have become a English teacher because I have always loved studying and teaching this language. In my family there are some teachers, but not English and I have inspired me in that. It is gratifying and I do not regret about it.

  • Do you think that is a good idea to become a English teacher in Brazil? 

Yes, I do. It is difficult in the beginning but when you love doing something it worth it. Although English teachers are not valued and they are badly paid. Education is not a priority here.

  • Would like you to be teaching English in some time later?

To be sincere I do not know because life changes faster. I do not like thinking about the future. I always live in the present.

  • What do you like most abou your profession?

Teaching English for me it is a pleasure. I love everything in my profession. life becomes much better and easily when you love what you do.
