In this video we talk about how we can help our students use chunks communicatively - we share 4 ideas that have worked well for us in the classroom. We’re using an interactive video quiz in one of our ideas, which you can find here.

Enjoy!

It is a nice concept and I really like how it's done, however, the grammar is not consistent there (present simple mixing with present continuous in the questions) and "cleaning the dog" is a strange structure - also he was feeding a dog in the video, so why is that incorrect?
