I tried "Is it okay to leave?"

Wouldn't "shall we go" be another possible translation?

It's similar, but I'm not convinced it's the same. "?אפשר ללכת" is asking permission, while "shall we go?" is a suggestion, like "?שנזוז?", "שנלך".

Also, I guess "shall" supposes an obligation to go, not a permit.

I wrote "Can I walk?" and it was marked wrong. Any ideas why? Or should it have been accepted?

With words like אפשר or מכיל, aside from intonation and punctuation marks, how can you tell if this is a question or a statement?

How would you say, "May I go?"
