Use of the wrong tense

Using the third person singular after can, must, etc., instead of the infinitive without to.

Don’t say: Ian can speaks English very well.

ΓΌ Say: Ian can speak English very well.

After the verbs can, must, may, shall, and will, use the infinitive without to, and not the third person of the present.
