What do people do there?




Can/Can’t (Mostly for Beginning Levels)


Introducing the topic:

We say, “I can” to express that we have the ability to do something.

For example:

I can learn.

I can talk.

I can walk.

  1. Ask learners what they can do, possibly skills they have from hobbies or work.


Activity Ideas:


              1. What We Can Do in English:

                1. Have learners make individual lists of things they can do.

  • I can say my name. I can say ‘thank you’ and ‘you’re welcome’. I can drive and read signs.

                  1. A variation of this activity can be done later in the semester where learners write things they can do with the English language. After they make their lists, you can make a copy for yourself, give the original back to each learners, and ask them to check everything they write with the list to make sure they haven’t missed any things they know how to do already.




              1. Role Playing in Stores:

                1. Have learners act out being in different types of stores by giving pairs index cards with store names on them.

                2. One person asks the other “Can I help you?” and the other asks “Can you show me where ___________ is?”

                3. The audience then guesses what kind of store the actors are in.




              1. What Can You Do in Other Countries?

                1. Brainstorm with learners a list of things you can do in other countries that you can’t do in the USA.

  • Previous examples have included: You can take a cab for $1. You can sell alcohol without permission. You can buy pets in the street.

                  1. This activity can be a good way to review Can/Can’t in intermediate levels because it can provide some juicy conversation.
