Impersonal verbs that are conjugated only in the il form but may still be used in any tense:

Falloir to have to; to be necessary Il faut
Valoir mieux to be better il vaut mieux
Pleuvoir to rain il pleut

Falloir and Valoir mieux are followed by the infinitive of another verb:

Il faut repondre. It is necessary to answer.
Il vaut mieux rentrer. It’s better to go home.

Falloir has the same basic meaning as devoir, but devoir is conjugated in all persons. Falloir is considered to be more general and somewhat stronger in its statement of necessity:

Il faut rentrer. It is necessary to go home.
Je dois rentrer. I have to go home.

Falloir and devoir are interchangeable when il faut is used with the appropriate indirect object pronoun to make the statement of necessity more personal, although il me faut is considered to be more formal:

Il me faut rentrer. Je dois rentrer.

The expression valoir la peine means to be worth the trouble. Its subject will always be a thing, not a person, and it is used only in the third-person singular or plural.

Ce travail vaut la peine. Les etudes valent la peine.
