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!

Hi Virgoletta! This video is fantastic. It does not only teach students the verb patterns but also to be kind. For me kindness is such a necessary quality in every human being. Let's spread kindness around the world and I hope more and more people will benefit from it!
