Open up your mind and get into the world of Modal verbs... These forms really give us a hard time because we insist on the idea that one form cannot have sooooooo many meanings! Modal verbs change their meaning depending on the context. They may express possibility, permission, necessity, ability! Oh my God! I am using modal verbs to give my explanation... You better have a look and see for yourslef what I mean.
Important things to rememeber:
1) They are fixed forms. Do not change them or add anthing to them. LET THEM BE!
2) They are always followed by a bare infinitive (without "to")
