    should vs should have to

    Dear teachers,

    Could you explain differences between the using of "should + verb" and "should + have + to + verb" ? For example "you should learn English" vs "you should have to learn English"
    I've already tried to look an explanation on the Internet, but couldn't find the clear answer. There are a lot of topics about "should + have + past participle" vs "should have + verb", but nothing about my question.

    Thanks in advance !

    "You should learn English" - if I said this, I would simply be stating my opinion that it's a good idea for you to learn English (or any other foreign language). However, it would still be your choice to learn, or not.

    "You should have to learn English" - if I said this, I would be stating my opinion that it should be obligatory to learn English, whether at school or privately. It means that I think you should have no choice in the matter.
