The course begins by explaining how to use the modal verb 'can' to say that you are allowed or able to do something. We show you how to combine ‘can’ and an infinitive verb and 'be’ with ‘able to'. We also lay out the past and negative forms of 'can' and 'could'. The course then teaches you how to use specific verbs to discuss the past in English. You will also learn how to use 'may' or 'might' (and their negative forms) to say something is possible or impossible in the future.

We then cover 'instead', 'going to' and the combination of 'may/might’ and ‘have to'. We explain how you can use 'could' instead of 'may' and 'might' in the positive, but not in the negative. The course shows you how to use 'must', 'must not' and 'don't have to', followed by 'have got to', 'should not', 'ought', 'would', 'would have' and 'will'.

Modal verbs can help you lay out your intentions and plans. This intermediate level English grammar course covers their use through presentations, examples, listening practice with native English speakers and assessment questions. We explore the rules of using modal verbs and their different forms and structures when used with nouns, pronouns, auxiliary verbs and tenses. This course helps you to polish your English skills.
