The ten modal verbs are:
can         could
may        might
shall         should    ought

These five verbs and expressions act in the same way:
be able to          have to           need to

be supposed to            be allowed to

Slide 4 - Slide

We use modal verbs to show if we believe something is certain, probable or possible (or not). We also use modals to do things like talking about ability, asking permission making requests and offers, and so on.
TIP: READ THE HELP WITH GRAMMAR page 130 Modal Verbs section in your Student Book for the specific uses.

Modal: Should/Ought to.              Usage: Advice
Write a personal problem (keep it clean!) on a slip of paper. Do not write your name on the paper so the problems remain anonymous. Put them into the box and mix them up. Each student then chooses a problem and must write a piece of advice in response. Then they read out the problem and the answer.
Use modals which offer advice: Should and Ought
