Would "ele soube ler" convey the same meaning?
E "sabia ler"?
Also right. It means he was able to read in the past but can't read anymore.
What is the difference between "Ele conseguiu ler" and "Ele pôde ler"?
[20/05/15] In this case nothing, but these verbs have some differences, I found this website talking about it.
Obrigada pela esta página, Alphaf. :)
[20/05/15] De nada!
podia should be accepted? Ele podia ler..
As we have no context, it is right too.
I think this is better: Ele pôde ler
Why is '" pude ler" not correct, please?
"pude" is for me the first person in the past: eu pude. You need the third person: pôde
Sim, claro... um erro bobo! kkk
Why is pôde wrong? DL took away the accent...
