    - Always capitalize the first words of sentences.
    - Always capitalize the word I.
    - Can asks about ability. May asks for permission.
    - We're not all guys.

    That's a good question for you to Google or look into at the library. The British Isles have been settled by many people over the centuries, so English is a mash-up of many languages. There are elements of Germanic languages (including Old English), French, Latin, Greek, and more.

    I'm not a teacher. I speak American English. I've tutored writing at the University of Southern Maine and have done a good deal of copy editing and writing, occasionally for publication.
