“要” means "should" in this lesson. 在这课里,它和 “需要”不一样。
For example, 
你要多休息。You should rest more.
你需要多休息。You need to rest more.

Hi rakinkuolie,
有(yǒu) means to have. For example, "我(wǒ)有(yǒu)一(yì)本(běn)书(shū)." I have a book.
能(néng) means can or be able to. For example,"你(nǐ)能(néng)给(gěi)我(wǒ)那(nà)本(běn)书(shū)吗(ma)?" Can you give me that book?
Let me know if you have any other problem about them. :-)
