In the lesson:
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?
This question relates to:French lesson "Il faut : expressing necessity and obligation"

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!
