    Welcome to the forum.

    Please see my corrections above, marked in red. We start every sentence with a capital letter. Please don't use abbreviations unless they are recognised, standard abbreviations.

    What have you discovered about "can" and "be able to" from your own grammar study at home? Have you checked the Similar Threads below? We have discussed this issue many times.
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    By the way, "btw" usually means "by the way" not "between".

    Please, correct all my mistakes. I should know English perfectly and if you show me my mistakes I will achieve my dream a little bit faster. A lot of thanks.
