Definition : 

Definition Modals are used to convey a degree of certainty or uncertainty. The main modal verbs are: Can, Could May, Might Shall, Should Will, Would Must Ought to

Degree of certainty?? : 

Degree of certainty?? CAN Suggests ability / power to do something E.g.: The teacher can give Jack permission to leave school early tomorrow. Meaning: The teacher has it in her power to consent. She could decide to allow Jack to leave. But we don’t whether she’ll use her authority to allow Jack to leave.

Degree of certainty? : 

Degree of certainty? May Suggests uncertain possibility E.g.: The teacher may or may not give Jack permission to leave school early. Meaning: The teacher may give permission based on her perception of Jack having a good reason. On the other hand, she may not.

Degree of certainty?? : 

Degree of certainty?? Should Suggests affirmative possibility E.g.: The teacher should give Jack permission to leave school early. Meaning: If Jack has a good reason, it would be expected that the teacher will allow him to leave early.

Degree of certainty?? : 

Degree of certainty?? Will Suggests no doubt E.g.: The teacher will give Jack permission to leave early. Meaning: The teacher surely allow Jack to leave early.

Degree of certainty?? : 

Degree of certainty?? Must Suggests obligation E.g.: The teacher must give Jack permission to leave early. Meaning: The teacher has no choice but to consent an early dismissal for Jack.

Points to NOTE… : 

Points to NOTE… ‘Could’ & ‘Might’ suggests: possibility but unlikely for an action to take place. E.g.: It might rain today but at the moment the sky is clear. ‘Would’ suggests hypothetical possibilities. In case of a fire, what would you do? I would call the fire service….
