Be Able to

To be able to do something means to have the ability to do it. Be able to is sometimes used in place of can or could. Instead of, "I can't go," you might say, "I am not able to go."

You can use be able to in any tense. Just change the tense of the verb be. For example, you can say, "I was able to see a movie last night," or, "He will be able to visit me tomorrow."

I’ll never be able to get the hang of it!  If I had been able to speak Chinese I would have answered in that language! I would be able to understand Maths now, if only I had studied it more at high school! I have been able to get the hang of the message! Will you be able to read that book in a day?
