    Question should and ought to

    Hello, everybody. Can you explain me in which situations we use "should" and "ought to"? Thank you very much for your answers.

    It's not that simple, and it's not how the forum works. Why don't you give us some sentences where you are unsure which to use?
    Remember - correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing make posts much easier to read.

    I don't have any examples. I just wanna to know how you use this words. Maybe there are some situations in which you use only "should" or "ought to" ?

    Something must have prompted you to wonder this. Have you seen a sentence which included "should" and you thought it should be "ought to"? You have not just conjured this question out of thin air.

    I can't think of any just now, but they probably exist.
    (There are no situations where you need to use 'wanna').
