PODCAST-ENGLISH-CAN-COULD-BE-ABLE-TO

The other day, somebody asked me about the difference between using can and be able to talk about ability. That’s a really great question and I think more than just a basic English grammar question. So for today’s English lesson let’s look at how we use can, could, and be able to.

Here are the example sentences. To get the details of this English lesson, you need to listen to the podcast or check the transcript for the details:

  • I can play tennis.
  • I’m not able to play tennis tomorrow because I have to work, but I am able to play tennis on Thursday.
  • I can play the guitar.
  • I am not able to play the guitar right now because I don’t have a guitar with me.
  • Yesterday I was able to play the guitar because I was home and I have a guitar in my house.
  • Yesterday I could play the guitar.
  • I can play the guitar tomorrow because it’s my day off.
  • I will be able to play the guitar tomorrow because it’s my day off.
