Read explanation

“May” and “might” are modal verbs, so we don’t add “to” after them. They have the same form with all pronouns and don’t require an auxiliary verb to make negations and questions. “You may” means you are allowed. “You may not” means you are not allowed. We make questions with “may” to ask permission to do something. “Might” (and “may”) is used to express probability. We say that something might happen when we are not totally sure. The exercises on this page will help you practise “may” and “might” in simple sentences. Recommended for beginners.
