Tips to remember the German word:
– “Ich kann” sounds similar to “I can,” which is convenient as the meanings are the same. You can remember it by thinking of “Ich” sounding like “itch” in English, an “itch” you “can” scratch.
– Remember that in German, “ich” means “I,” and “kann” comes from the verb “können,” which means “can” or “to be able to.” You can think of “kann” as “can” with an extra “n.”

Explanations:
– “Ich kann” is the first-person singular present tense of the verb “können,” which means “to be able to” or “can” in English.

Other words that mean the same thing:
– “Ich bin in der Lage” which translates to “I am in the position to.”
– “Ich vermag” which is a more formal or old-fashioned way of saying “I am able to.”

Different Conjugations:
– Infinitive: können (to be able to)
– Present: ich kann (I can), du kannst (you [singular informal] can), er/sie/es kann (he/she/it can), wir können (we can), ihr könnt (you [plural informal] can), sie/Sie können (they/you [formal] can)
– Simple past: ich konnte (I could)
– Present perfect (compound past): ich habe gekonnt (I have been able to)
