Modal verbs

Hi, dear followers!

In today's mini-lesson, I'm going to explain the Modal Verbs.

First of all: what is a Modal Verb?
They are auxiliary verbs we use to express different things. 
For example: possibilities, obligations, abilities, among others.

Here you have a list you can use as a memo for your self-study. 
In this opportunity, Romeo will serve as the protagonist in every example:


I could eat five cans of tuna and even more!

Can → ability, permission, possibility
Could → possibilities, ability in the past
Must → obligation
Must not → prohibition
May → high possibility/probability, permission
Might → remote possibility/probability, polite permission
Should → suggestion
Need to → necessity
Need not → lack of necessity
Ought to → obligation, logical conclusion
Had better → advice

Can you think about your own examples? It all depends on what you want to express. Allow me to help you with this.

Did you know that I have a lot of cats? Okay, maybe you know this because you've been in my lessons or maybe because you read my blog and see their photos. As I have many cats, I need to buy a lot of food for them.

See? It's easy! 😉
