Modal can save a dollar every day. – He

Modal verbs are auxiliary verbs; they cannot be used if they’re not accompanied
by another verb, this verb usually goes next to it. Modal verbs do not have a
conjugation, they never change their spelling and they also don’t have time,
like other verbs do.

Modal verbs are usually used to express something that is supposed or
that could be done. When talking, you should use the modal verbs when if you’re
going to ask for permission, or maybe to suggest something, to show an ability
or a possibility and so on.
