whats the difference between veux and avoir besoin de

hi,

I was wondering whats the difference between using the verb Je veux and J'ai besoin de nouvelle voiture? I thought that it can mean the same thing when using Je veux nouvelle voiture.


thanks

Hi Nicole,

Vouloir (veux)  --> Wish / desire / envy

Avoir besoin de --> need / necessity 

So to take your example "Je veux / J'ai besoin de    a new car

You want /wish/desire versus  You need/have a necessity for        a new car.

Hope this helps

Jim
