In this lesson, we will talk about the ‘Can/Can’t’ structure.

“Can” and “can’t” are about whether you’re able to do something or not. “Can” is a magical word in English that shows if you have the ability or permission to do something.

“Can”:

Use it when you’re saying you’re able to do something.

Example:

I can swim. (I know how to swim.)

“Can’t”:

Use it when you’re saying you’re not able to do something.

Example:

I can’t fly. (I’m not able to fly like a bird.)

So, “can” is for things you’re able to do, and “can’t” is for things you’re not able to do. “can” is like a key that opens the door to show what you’re able to do or to ask if you’re allowed to do something. Simple, right?
