ملخص الدرس / الرابعة متوسط/اللغة الإنجليزية/File 2/Making request

the exemples

Can you spare a moment?

I can play the guitar.

Can I take part in the contest?

When I was young, I couldn't do anything I wanted with my free time.

I was able to convince them.

When will you be able to come and register for the contest?


the rule

We use 'I' when we ask for 'permission' and "you" when we make 'request'

Can has no future form .So we use "will be able to" when we talk about 'ability' in the future.

"Was able to" is used to talk about – past – achievements.
