Sorry, I can’t able to

“I can’t able to come to work tomorrow.” Is this sentence right?

If you are unsure, you should read the rest of this blog. It’s as simple as a pie! Can (or can’t) and able mean the same – the ability to do something. So, if you use both the words together, it’s like saying the same thing twice.

So, either say able or say can / can’t.

I can’t come to work tomorrow / I can come to work tomorrow.


I won’t be able to come to work tomorrow / I will be able to come to work tomorrow.

Easy, isn’t it?
