In this lesson, learning how to use modal verb properly and how to avoid common mistakes when using special helping verb. I realize that we actually use model verb all the time. So it’s important to know how to use them correctly.
Modal verbs are words that express different kind of things
Ex: they might express ability, possibility, permission, and obligation. And they behave differently from other verbs which can makes it a little bit confusing. Below are the examples of model verbs that are most commonly used;
Can may should must will
Could might ought to have to should / would
Here are the 3 Basic rules to follow to avoid most of the mistake that usually make with the modal verbs.
• First of all make sure to use model verb as is, meaning don’t change it in the present in the past or in the future
For Example: He can swim (correct sentence)
He cans swim. (Here you can see that s was added which make it wrong)
• Second use the base form of the verb after a modals – don’t use “to”
Example: you should say; He might join us. (Correct sentence)
He might to join us. (Don’t use full infinitive just use the base form of the verb which is join)
• Third, use not in the negative form after modals don’t add any extra words - don’t use words like don’t, doesn’t, isn’t, aren’t, wasn’t, won’t instead just use not
Example; you should not smoke (correct sentence)
You don’t should smoke (wrong ) the only exception we can make is if we useif you want to make it negative we have to use the “ have to “ Ex: you don’t have to smoke
There are few more things to keep in mind but with lots of practice and exercises the better the students can understand.
