Undecided questions
How can you translate the word "might" into German? Wie heißt das Wort 'might' auf Deutsch?

For example:

I might go swimming.

- You could say "Ich werde vielleicht schwimmen"

But apart from using 'might' can you use 'dürfte' or something like that?

Thanks!

    Ich werde vielleicht schwimmen gehen.
    oder
    Ich könnte vielleicht schwimmen gehen.

     

    Sometimes you can also use "dürfte". For example: "That could be interesting" - "Das dürfte interessant sein" - "Das könnte interessant sein".

    But you can't say "Ich dürfte vielleicht schwimmen gehen".
