I used to say to my students that the word "can't" is French and we only
learn art in English in an American class. After announcing that this word
was French and not to be spoken, if someone said, "I can't draw", I would
then begin jabbering in French. They would then laugh. It cut down on the
"I can't draw"s.

I have a page devoted to this problem located at:
