Can I use "may," "might," and "could" in my first sentence? Additional information is provided for context.

Yes, you may need English in the future. We don't know what's ahead of us in the future. If you spend a lot of time learning English you will learn it quickly. You may need it when you travel but it depends on where you go.

    Syntactically they're all fine - but idiomatically, might is more common, and could is relatively unlikely. I don't think there's really any difference in meaning though, so it's really just a stylistic choice. – FumbleFingers Feb 16 at 13:09
