Just a problem with literal translations... can = podem; could =podiam/poderiam

Duolingo is a stickler for correct grammar, in both the language you're learning, and the language you speak. The problem is most of us don't even use our own language correctly. http://unenlightenedenglish.com/2009/04/can-vs-could
