    choose

    1- In some countries, children ................ wear school uniform.
    a) don't need to b) needn't

    I think there is no difference between 'a' and' b'.Am I right?

    Thanks in advance.

    Re: choose

    Hi nado92,

    1. To give permission not to do something, we can use “do not need” or “needn’t” indistinctly.

    2. On the other hand, when we talk about a general necessity, obligation or convenience, we prefer “do not need” .

    Regards,

    José Manuel Rosón Bravo

    Both a) and b) are correct.
