comment What modal verbs do natives use nowadays?
@DenisKulagin: Why is it quite sad? When one starts learning a language, the most important thing is to get the basic right (which means something neither too formal nor too informal, as well as neither too long or complex) and avoid overwhelming the student with too much information. From this basic we can then build onto higher levels. My recommendation? Start with the 'flavour' your niece is learning and expand her horizons bit by bit.
