A student text exploring the form, meaning
use of modals
by Joseph Krupp and Lisa Tenuta
Intermediate to advanced proficiency, high school,
university, and adult
the bane of both ESL/EFL students and their teachers! They're all here,clearly
explained with lots of examples, and then practiced in amusing written
14 units explore the form, meaning, and use of the American English modal
verb system. Nothing could make modals easy, but this text is so focused and
clear that it gives both students and teachers the courage to tackle these
helping verbs, one semantic grouping at a time.
Here are a few examples:
Modals of Ability - Can, Be able to, Could.
Modals of Prohibition - Mustn't, Can't, Couldn't.
Modals of Request - Could, Can, Would, Will, Would you
Modals of Probability - Should, Ought to, Must,
Have to, and Have got to.
For fun, in the exercises Joe and Lisa imagine touring all around the world
from one colorful culture and country to another, from Ecuador to Egypt to
Thailand. There are 14 units visiting 14 countries. In the exercises, you can go
shopping in Port Said, you ought to visit Kyoto, and you simply mustn't miss
The Modal Book gives lots of fill-in-the-blanks workbook exercises (with the
answers at the back of the book), but it will also serve as an easy-to-use
reference that students will keep with them for years.
You won't be disappointed if you try The Modal Book.
