Do you have trouble using English modals?
Today, Lindsay and Michelle give you three crazy role-plays to understand when to use should, could and would!
Correct use of modals like should, could and would can be confusing. All three deal with time and possibility, and all three involve telling or asking someone to do something.
Should describes the strong possible likelihood of something. It is also used to give advice.
Could describes a possibility in the past or the future. It can also be used as a polite request.
Would is most commonly used to make a polite request.
How can you use should, could and would?
Give us some examples in the comments section below!
