MODALS
CAN - CANT HAVE DONT HAVE TO
HAVE TO
We use have to to say that it is necessary to do something. Sometimes it doesn't
matter which you use:
Oh, it's later than I thought. I have to go
Have to is impersonal. We use have to when we are talking about facts, not our
personal feelings. You have to do something because of a rule or the situation:
You can't turn right here. You have to turn left. (Its against the law to turn right.)
My eyesight isn't very good. I have to wear glasses for reading. (I cant read
without them)
George can't come out with us this evening. He has to work. (He has an
obligation.)
I have to get up early tomorrow. I'm going away and my train leaves at 7:30.
(Because of the train schedule, it is necessary for me to get up early.)
DONT HAVE TO
You don't have to do something = you don't need to do it (but you can if you want):
You can tell me if you want but you don't have to tell me. (= you don't need to tell
me)
I'm not working tomorrow, so I don't have to get up early
CAN CANT
Can is used to express ability or to say that something is possible.
Negative
To form the negative we add "not" after can to form one word: cannot.
We can also contract the negative to form can't. (can't = cannot)

I cannot play the piano. We can't go to the cinema tonight.


She cannot speak French very well. He can't drive a car

Questions
To from the question we change the position of the subject and the auxiliary verb.
The main verb is still in the infinitive without to.
