Common errors when using English modal verb structures

The following modal auxiliary verbs are followed by the infinitive without to:
can, could, may, might, must, shall, should, will, would:
  • When travelling, we should respect the customs of the countries we visit. (NOT should to respect; should respecting)

Modal verbs form questions and negatives without using do:
  • Can I help you? (NOT Do I can help you?)
  • Will you meet me when I arrive? (not Do you will meet me…)
  • You mustn't worry about me. (NOT You do not must worry about me.)

When we talk about obligation or necessity using have or need, we use to + infinitive:
  • I have to finish my assignment this weekend.
  • I need to talk to you.

In questions and negatives, have to and need to behave like normal verbs and we use do:
  • Do you have to pay extra for breakfast? (NOT have you to pay …)
  • They said I don't need to bring my own sleeping bag. (NOT I needn't to bring …)
