Modal Verbs Reading Text

Do you need to see modal verbs in a reading context? Here's a reading text on modal verbs for the pre-intermediate level of students, which is also accompanied by a set of true/false questions.

What's Covered?

The reading text is a dialogue between two students talking about a submission of a project in their schools. Modal verbs are suitably implemented in the conversation according to their common uses. A great warm-up activity for a grammar revision on modal verbs would be finding the modal verbs and explaining their meanings in the context. In this way, they'll adequately exploit the text in a revision lesson for modal verbs. 

Here are modal verbs used in the dialogue: must, have to, should, can, can't, don't have to.

You can find the online version here if you want to check the suitability of the questions.

Thanks! Modals are usually boring for my students and this will help them understand in a funny and meaningful way.
