Tips to remember “puede”:
– Associate “puede” with the English “can” by recalling the phrase, “Yes, I can!” -> “¡Sí, yo puedo!”
– Recognize the similarities in sound: ‘puede’ sounds like ‘pwede’ which is informal slang for “can” or “able to” in Tagalog, a language spoken in the Philippines.
– Link it to the word “power” in English. In Spanish, “poder” is the verb for “to be able to,” and “puede” is the third person singular form.

– “Puede” is the present tense, indicative mood, third-person singular form of the verb “poder,” which means “to be able to” or “can.” It is used to indicate that someone has the ability or permission to do something.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– “Es capaz de” – translates to “is capable of.”
– “Tiene la capacidad de” – literally means “has the capacity to.”

Alternate meanings/slang:
– In some contexts, “puede” can be informally used to express doubt, similar to the English “might” or “could possibly,” especially when it is used with “ser” as in “puede ser” (it could be).

Examples of sentences that use “puede”:
– “Ella puede hablar cuatro idiomas.” (She can speak four languages.)
– “¿Puede pasarme la sal?” (Can you pass me the salt?)
– “Puede que lleguemos tarde.” (We might arrive late.)
– “¿Puede abrir la ventana, por favor?” (Can you open the window, please?)
– “Él no puede venir hoy a la reunión.” (He can’t come to the meeting today.)
