English Modal Verbs - May, Might, Could, Can - Talking About Possibilities English Modal Verbs - May, Might, Could, Can - Talking About Possibilities
1 month ago En
The English modal verbs 'can', 'could', 'may' and 'might' are used to talk about possibilities. This English modal verbs lesson will help you learn how to use may, might, could, and can correctly. For example: - He can be really mean sometimes - It could take us a few hours to finish this - They might have missed the train These sentences all express possibilities: things which are possible, but not certain. We often use these modal verbs to talk about things we are not sure about, or to give our opinions. See the full version of this lesson on our website: https://www.oxfordonlineenglish.com/modal-verbs-possibility. In this lesson, you can learn: 1) How to use 'can' to talk about general possibilities in the present or the future. 2) How to use 'could', 'may' and 'might' to talk about specific possibilities. 3) The difference between general and specific possibilities, and when you need to use 'can' or 'could/may/might'. 4) Talking about possibilities in the past using 'could have', 'may have' or 'might have'. 5) The two different meanings of 'could have'—'could have' can be used in two different ways to talk about possibilities in the past, depending on whether you know what happened or not. We use the modal verb 'can' to talk about general possibilities—things which can be true at different times, or for different people. For example: "It can take two hours to get there by train." This means that it can take two hours every time, not just once. You can use the verbs 'could', 'may' or 'might' to talk about specific possibilities—things which are only possible at one time. For example: "It could take you two hours to get there by train." This means it could take -you- two hours, not someone else. It's specific. In this sentence you could use any of the three modal verbs 'could', 'may' or 'might'—there's no difference in meaning. To talk about possibilities in the past, use the modal verbs 'could', 'may', or 'might', plus 'have' plus a past participle. For example: "I don't know where they are—they could have missed the train." In this sentence, you can use any of the verbs 'may', 'might' or 'could', as before.

Modal Verbs - Introduction to Using Modal Verbs in English Modal Verbs - Introduction to Using Modal Verbs in English
9 months ago En
In this lesson, you can learn about modal verbs, what they are, why you need them and how they work. Modal verbs, like 'can', 'must' or 'should' are very common in English. See this full free lesson on our website: https://www.oxfordonlineenglish.com/english-modal-verbs The questions we will discuss in this lesson: 1) What are modal verbs? 2) How are modal verbs different to 'normal' verbs? 3) Why are modal verbs important? 4) What makes modal verbs complicated? Modal verbs are verbs which are used to add meaning to another verb. They follow different grammar rules to regular verbs, and can often be used in many different ways. The basic modal verbs in English are: can, could, may, might, will, would, shall, should and must. There are other verbs which behave like modal verbs, although they do not have all the features of 'full' modal verbs. Examples include: ought to, need and have to. Modal verbs are different from 'normal' verbs in several ways. First of all, modal verbs can only be used together with another verb in the infinitive form, without 'to'. Secondly, modal verbs don't have tenses like other verbs do: they don't have past, perfect, future forms etc. Modal verbs are used to express many, many different meanings, such as: - Giving advice: "I think you should take the job." - Talking about possibility: "We could do it by Friday, if you wanted." - Asking permission: "May I take this seat?" - Expressing certainty: "You can't have seen him—he's on holiday in Germany!" And many, many more… All of the meanings which we use modal verbs to express are very, very common in all forms of English. You could hardly say or write anything in English without using modal verbs. Although modal verbs can appear very simple, they're actually incredibly complicated, and it will take you time and work to understand them fully. However, if you can use modal verbs well, this will give you much more control over your English, so it's worth spending more time to learn about the details of modal verbs.

How to Link Words - Speak English Fluently - Pronunciation Lesson How to Link Words - Speak English Fluently - Pronunciation Lesson
2 years ago En
In this lesson, you can see some common examples of linking in English pronunciation. You can also see how learning about linking can help your English listening and improve your spoken English. Was this lesson useful? What do you know about linking words? Let us know in the comments below! Do you sometimes find it difficult to understand spoken English? Understanding spoken English (especially native English) can be difficult because we don’t pronounce each word separately. In English, we link words together, so two or more words can sound like one word. See the full version of this free lesson here: https://oxfordonlineenglish.com/linking-pronunciation Look at a sentence: "Do you remember that time when Anna and Amy fell in the swimming pool?" Try reading the sentence. Can you pronounce the sentence in one sound, without any pauses? When native speakers talk, they don’t pause between words. They pronounce whole phrases and even sentences as one continuous sound. If you want to speak English more fluently and sound more natural, you should try to do this too. But how? There are many pronunciation points you need to study, but today we’re going to look at just one very important point: linking. Linking is how you connect words when you speak, so that two words are pronounced together. Here we can see two different types of link. You’ll learn about these ways to link words, and more, in this lesson. You can learn: - How to link consonant sounds. - How to link consonants to vowels. - How to link two vowel sounds. - How to link words to speak more fluently in English. - Why linking is important for your English speaking.
