Why doesn't "Iedereen wil kunnen Nederlands spreken" work?

Incorrect word order. Here's the link to a good grammar article on word order in Dutch sentences: https://www.duolingo.com/comment/25001504.

Hmmmm.... just wondering about the use of "kunnen" here. Is it necessary? Google translates this phrase as "everybody wants to speak dutch", so what's the difference between the above and "iedereen wil nederlands spreken"?
