Everyday English – may and might

Everyday English – MAY and MIGHT

Many of my English students ask me about the difference between MAY and MIGHT. Here’s an answer! I hope it helps you too 🙂

MAY and MIGHT have the same meaning. It’s like saying PERHAPS.
We use them to say something is possible.

“I may work late tonight.” = It’s possible I will work late tonight.
“I’t’s almost 10:00. My wife might be mad!”
“My brother might visit me tomorrow.” = It’s possible my brother will visit me tomorrow.
You can use MAY or MIGHT in either of these sentences.
“I might work late tonight.” OR “My brother may visit me tomorrow.”
