  1. Kate:

    Thank you for this! I will be sure to learn some of these words.
    I am a beginner and am not sure how to use these words in a sentence. Could I have some help with a simple sentence or two I can plug these words into? For example: I have to make tea, I want to make tea, or shall I make tea?

    • Nitin Kumar:

      @Kate Namaste Kate!

      I’m glad that you liked the post. Following your suggestion, I’m going to write my next post on the usage with some example sentences.
      You’ll see the next post by this weekend.
