Hello!

today I was in doubt regarding the follwoing sentence:

" please check our website, you might find some nice proposals"

" please check our website, you may find some nice proposals"

which sentence is better?

Thanks

Pamela
Dear Palema,

May and Might are both used to talk about the chances of something happening, and to ask for and give permission(especially in a more formal style).

E.g: I may see you tomorrow.

Do you think I might borrow your typewriter?

And, Might is mostly used as a less definite or more hesitant form of may, suggesting a smaller chance- it is used when people think something is possible but not very likely. compare:

I may go to London tommorow.(perhaps a 50% chance)

Joe might come with me.(perhaps a 30% chance)

Hope it helps

In my opinion 'may' is better. Although 'may' and 'might' have the same meaning, 'may' is just a little more formal and polite.

Also, you really have two sentences there, so you should not separate them with a comma. I recommend this:

Please check our website. You may find some nice proposals.

Actually, the "percentages" explanation doesn't work because you can say

I may go to London, but I might not.

These two possibilities have to cover 100% of the cases. If may covers 50% and might covers 30%, you are still missing 20%.

Percentages just confuse students.

Hi and thanks to both for the suggestions.

I understand that " may" is more formal than " might" but at the end the meaning is the same ... OK. If I use " you SHOULD find some...." so it is good as well I guess but the meaning changes a bit?

Thanks

Pamela
In your sentences, you should find = you can expect to find.

aha.. so "you should find "it s not the best solution in this case
