AKB48 大島優子

 

宮崎ハロー英会話のミニレッスン 29: Yuko Oshima should to come to Miyazaki!

Risa: Hey Ami, have you heard AKB 48 is coming to Fukuoka?

Ami: Really? Cool! But they should to come to Miyazaki! I’d love to go to their concert!

Risa:  Hmmmmm……….

Today a student made a mistake using “modal verbs” (法助動詞). There are 10 modal verbs:

“can, could, may, might, will, would, must, shall, should ,and ought to  ”

Modal verbs are always followed by an infinitive verb (不定詞) without ‘to’,  (except ‘ought to’, and ‘ought’ is not very common in modern English)

So can you see the error that Ami made in the above conversation?

She should have said: ” But they should come to Miyazaki.”

Actually, most students don’t make a mistake when they say ‘should’ (my student today said “could to go”), but the rule is the same for ALL the modal verbs.

Good luck with your studies, and keep warm over the winter!
