    This could be where the problem is. In British English, there's a different vowel sound in the pair can/can't. In American English there isn't; and as the "t" and the "d" are articulated with the tongue in the same position, it's possible to make the mistake of thinking there's only one consonant there.

    What Humble said was right. (There's another, very informal, variant: "Me neither".)

    For your second:

    So can I
    I can too
    Me too (informal)
