情态动词 “can” 的三种用法:

1. 用 “can” 表 “能力”。

I can play the guitar

I can speak Spanish, but I can’t fly.

2. 用 “can” 表 “请求或给予许可”。

Can I open the window, Elly?
No, you can’t! It’s too cold!

Can I go for lunch, Elly?
Yes, of course you can, James!

3. 用 “can” 表 “可能性”。

Learning a language can be difficult.

Elly, take a jacket! It can get cold at night!
