Je sais le faire

The translation according to the lesson is "I can do it" but surely to express "I can do it" is "Je peux le faire"?

Bonjour Jim ! "Je sais le faire." can also mean "I can do it" in the sense of "I know how to do it / I have that skill": "Je sais nager." = I can swim/I know how to swim -> here saying "Je peux nager" would mean you're able to do it then, or you're allowed to do it, not necessarily that you have that skill. I hope that's helful! À bientôt !

Thanks Aurélie, That is much clearer now, I understand your point. Regards, Alan
