Read explanation

“Should” is a modal verb, so we don’t add “to” after it. It has the same form with all pronouns (I should, you should, he/she/it should, we should, they should) and doesn’t require an auxiliary verb to make negations and questions. We say "should" when we recommend or don’t recommend to do something. “You should” means it’s a good idea to do that, “you shouldn’t” means it is a bad idea to do that, you'd better not do so. The exercises on this page will help you practise “should” in simple sentences. Recommended for beginners. Check out the related topics below for more basic modal verbs, explanation and exercises.
