Futur simple Vs conditionnel present
The tip says to decide between je form for future simple and conditionnel present for pouvoir by comparing 'i will have to' with 'i could'. I thought 'i will have to' is 'je devrais' and future simple for pouvoir would translate to 'i will be able to'
This relates to:Conjugate pouvoir in Le Conditionnel Présent = could (conditional mood) -
You are correct, Damien:
Je devrai ranger ma chambre. -- I will have to clean up my room.Je pourrai ranger ma chambre. -- I will be able to clean up my room.
Je devrais ranger ma chambre. -- I should clean up my room.Je pourrais ranger ma chambre. -- I would be able to clean up my room.
P.S.: Note the addidional "-s" in the conditional.
