HELPING LEARNERS USE CHUNKS COMMUNICATIVELY

 

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!

Task description:
Listen to Ed Sheeran's song Perfect and fill the gaps (with irregular verbs or vocabulary words) or put the sentences into the correct order.
Scene summary:
Ed Sheeran's beautiful song Perfect is the base for this listening comprehension exercise. Students listen to the song and fill the gaps or order the sentences. It's a great way to practise the English language (listening, vocabulary, word order and spelling) with a song which my stundents really love.
