What are modal verbs?

A modal verb is a type of verb that indicates likelihood, ability, requests, suggestions, or any other modality. Modal verbs are different from other verbs because they come before the infinitive of another verb (without the word to). Common modal verbs include can, could and should but there are many more of them that you’ll go over with your students.
