Various Grammars for Obligation in Japanese Language

We learned about grammar for obligation yesterday, but there are some other various ways in obligation using conditional ~nakereba narimasen and ~nai to ikenai/dame. Today, we will learn ~nakereba narimasen and ~nai to dame/ikenai^^, don't need small talk, let's begin:

Grammar ~nakereba narimasen (~なければなりません)

JLPT Level: N4
Meaning: Must
Must learn before: ~ba conditional form
Formula: ~ba conditional form + narimasen
Example:
世界中の人々は死ななければなりません
sekaijuu no hitobito wa shinanakereba narimasen
People around the world must die
頑張らなければなりません
ganbaranakereba narimasen
(I/we) must work hard

Grammar ~nai to dame/ikenai (~ないとだめ / いけない)

JLPT Level: N4
Meaning: Must/have to
