Have to or Choose to?

Have to is a key expression in English but many inspirational and aspirational books warn readers away from such thinking.

Rosenberg argues that such language denies responsibility and blocks compassion. So what is the conscientious language teacher to do?
This doublesided worksheet for more able learners of English is aimed to give practise using the forms have to and choose to. It invites learners to first think about things they feel they have to do and change them into affirmations: I choose to...because.
