Do we not use deber in the present tense?

So, is it incorrect to say - Debo comer- Is the use of deber covered in other lessons?

Thanks

This relates to:
Using deber to say should -

Okay - think I found the answer. Deber in present tense is more of "must" than should- correct?


Thanks

Hi Meghan


Yes, you are right. "Debo comer" means "I must eat" and "Debería comer" means "I should eat".
