A modal verb are verbs that behave irregularly in the English language. They are used to express a sense of likelihood (can or could) or something being considered necessary (must or will). You will rarely find a modal by itself, in most cases it has another verb present. Modals are often part of verb phrases and serve as the helping verb in the sentence they reside in. These worksheets will help students understand the purpose and proper usage of modals in sentences.
