Impersonal verbs and expressions

Valérie: Dans notre première leçon de grammaire, nous allons parler des verbes et des expressions impersonnelles. In English, we use ‘it’ for impersonal expressions.
Jack: Oui... it’s raining, it’s cold, it’s hot...
Valérie: Exactement. En français, nous utilisons le pronom sujet il.
Jack: pleut, il fait froid, il fait chaud...
Valérie: Très bien. Nous allons aussi apprendre à utiliser une expression très importante : il faut.
Jack: Il faut apprendre cette expression.
Valérie: Voilà ! Il faut basically means it is necessary. It is impersonal but it can work with an indirect object... it is necessary for me or for you. Dans ce cas, vous pouvez dire : il me faut, il te faut, il lui faut...
