会,可以and 能

Post by jilang »

Hi

Whats the difference between the three words 会,可以and 能. They all mean can but what's the difference? I think 可以 means allow but I'm not sure.

Help please.

hello

hi,nice to meet you.let me try to explain there three characters for you.

会means you have the ability to do something.
eg; I can sing. I can't sing for you , because I have a sore throat today. 我会唱歌。但是今天我不能给你唱,因为我的嗓子疼。

能means you not only have the ability,but also be willing to do.
eg; I can teach you Chinese,because I have the ability


sorry,it is too late.I have to take a rest. If you can add me ,we can discuss more easily. my MSN is [dreamfly123456@hotmail.com]
I am willing to become your Chinese friends.
