The English sentence says "She can sing", not "She knows how to sing". I know how to sing but I can't sing because my voice is terrible. Can all French people (or Quebecoise) who know how to sing, actually sing???
Freeform Writing Exercise A1
You will use 'savoir + infinitif ' as you say, to convey that you know how to do something -
Je sais jouer aux échecs = I know how to play chess
Je sais parler espagnol = I can speak Spanish
'Elle sait chanter' in this context is something like -
Golly, can she sing!
We could have said
elle chante bien
or the opposite
elle chante faux / elle chante comme une casserole
Hope this helps!
