Bonjour Ross,

Avoir besoin de means "to need" in French, while Il faut que (note that there is no "l") means "to be necessary."

So avoir besoin focuses on the subject who needs to do something, and il faut que focuses on what needs to be done.

Bonjour Laura
So does 'Il faut que' translate as 'It is necessary that'?
