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!

thanks for presenting this great movie and for pairing it with something unpleasant like the simple past ;) this lesson was fun. I also let the students describe people, talk about things they did wrong in the past and had them write a very short letter of apology (-> how to write a personal letter) with some expressions given beforehand.

Wooow! by far the best resource ever!!!! I loved it! Congrats you are amazing! I would just add more questions to make it longer for other levels, and some discussion questions to promote more communicative activities. I used this for a 1-1 class with my 7th grader.
