    Modal verbs

    Hello ;


    English people use may to ask for permission, or to give permission to do something.

    This use is similar to CAN, but MAY is more formal.


    English people also use MAY to express the possibility of something happening in the future.


    MAY has the same form for all persons : I may, you may, she may, they may etc ...


    In English remember that : MUST is used for obligation.


    Now try to complete the following sentences with MAY or CAN or MUST
