is the past of can.
When we went into the house, we could smell something burning.
But we also use Could to talk about possible actions now or in the futher.
a:What would you like to do tonight?
b:We could go to the movies.(We will able to go to the movies tonight.)
*It's nice day. We could go for a walk.(We will able to go for a walk.)

We could go out tonight.
He could have helped me with my homework.
