In the lesson:

Il faut une gomme pour effacer des erreurs.We need a rubber / eraser to erase mistakes.

What is the difference between above and:

Il nous faut une gomme pour effacer des erreurs.

? Is it simply a matter of formality or is it incorrect?

thanks

Hi Alex,

There is a slight difference  -

'Il faut une gomme...' is a general comment which applies to everyone so I would use the universal 'you' or even a passive to translate this example...

'Il nous faut une gomme...' applies of 'nous' (whoever this is) but it refers to a specific group of people.

Hope that helps!
