O verbo CAN usa se como o vosso PODER. Be able é mais como SER CAPAZ. Tome em mente que o verbo CAN tem somente presente e pretérito. Para todos os outros tempos verbais usa de BE ABLE. Ex. I will BE ABLE to make it ... I have not BEEN ABLE to make it ... etc.

It depends on the situation. Do you have an example?
