Básico 1- Can, can't

Watch this video. You can listen and read the subtitles aloud (en voz alta). Imitate the pronunciation. 

You can also use this (American English). Start in Unit 9, looking for a job. Start in minute 2.
Podéis usar también este. Empezad en la unidad 9, en el minuto 2.

These are some of the words in the video:

wash clothes: lavar la ropa,
wash dishes: fregar.

Use this link to revise can / can't. You can do exercises 1, 2, 4, 5, 8, 9, 11, 12. I think that's enough.
