Can, Could, Would to Offer, Suggest & Request

We use the helping or modal verbs CAN, COULD & WOULD LIKE to offer, suggest, request & invite.

Modals Review – A2 Pre-Intermediate English

CAN – Use can with friends or informal settings for requests (things you want).  Example sentence:  Can I borrow a pen, please?

COULD – Use Could to make requests or ask for permission.  Could is a more polite than can. Example sentence: Could I speak to John, please?  Yes, of course.

WOULD LIKE (TO) – Use would like (to) for invitations and offers.  Example sentence:  Would you like to go out tonight? 2.  Would you like some more cake?

Remember: We use some in questions that are offers or requests.  Example: Can I have some chocolate?  Do you want some bread?
