    Does “I can” have a future meaning? I mean, sure you can express “I am going to be able to” and “I will be allowed to”, but how can you say “I can” in the future? Is it “I will”?

      Hi Jonathon!
      You have to use “to be able to” or sometimes “can”.
      Ils pourront t’aider demain –> They will be able to help you tomorrow. OR They can help you tomorrow.
      The correct translation of “ils pourront” should be “they will can”, but it doesn’t exist.
      If you say “they will help you tomorrow” that means “ils t’aideront demain” and not “ils pourront t’aider demain”.
