Hello guys, I am learning english, and now i am learning about the modal verbs, so I'd like to ask something.?

is verb "to need" still used like as a modal verb?


It is extremely rare when it is classified as modal, and used that way, in modern (American) speech anyway. "You need not do that" might be an example, but "You don't need to do that" would be much more common nowadays.


Yes it is. Your mom needs me
