MODAL VERBS

Modal verbs are auxiliary verbs that can not function as a main verb,
unlike auxiliary verbs "be", "do" and "have" that they can function as
a main verb.
Modal verbs express mode. They can express ability, possibility,
necessity or other status. They are auxiliary verbs future and
conditional. The English verb tenses are not enough to express ideas
of chance or uncertainty. There is no conditional tense in English. At
the same time, auxiliary verbs are used for conditional. Nor is there a
tense and the subjunctive in Spanish. Therefore, it is very important
to understand the uses of modal verbs.
As complementary verbs are modal verbs do not work without
another word. The other verb always goes after the modal verb is in
the base form (the infinitive without "to"). Modal verbs are not
conjugated and have no time.
Modal verbs are:
can
could
may
Might
will
shall
should
ought to
must / have to
would
