    *** A NON-TEACHER"S OPINION ***


    (1) The correct sentence is "He can't play now."

    (2) The rule: After an auxiliary verb, ALWAYS use the

    base form of the verb (the form you find in the dictionary.

    NEVER use the "s" form):

    She cannot speak Mandarin Chinese.

    He will visit us tomorrow.

    Yes, she may borrow my cellphone.
