"also can" or "can also"

Read the following sentence:
We also can go fishing.

The above sentence is incorrect. "can" or "could" are a modal verbs. The word "also" should come after modal verbs.

Therefore, the correct sentence is:
We can also go fishing.

Let's speak and write better English!

Dear Anonymous,

in order to improve your essay writing, u need to do a lot of writing practice. if possible write at least an essay once/twice a week & let your teacher check. since u have tendency to make a lot of grammatical errors in your essay, i advise u to write short sentences in your essay. after your teacher has checked your essay, make correction by re-writing the essay. this is where u can learn from your mistakes. all the best, think positive & never give up.
