8 Using pouvoir & vouloir These 2 verbs are used when you want to say that you can or want to do something. Because of this, another verb usually follows pouvoir and vouloir. Since you cant have 2 verbs conjugated next to each other, the first verb is conjugated and the second is in the infinitive. Ex. Je peux nager.I can swim. Je veux nager.I want to swim.

9 Negation with pouvoir & vouloir As always, the ne….pas format is used. Place the ne before the verb and the pas after the verb. With these 2 verbs, the ne…pas goes around pouvoir and vouloir and not the infinitive verb.
