In this episode of Study English we are going to look at ways of discussing a topic.
When you are writing or speaking, you can present facts, or you can use your opinion – but how can you tell the difference?
Modal Verbs are very useful in texts requiring opinions such as IELTS Writing Task 2, and the Speaking test.
