Teaching English to Children in a FUN Way

Have your ESL beginners ever made the mistake of saying:

 “I can playing” or “I can to play”? Well mine sure have!!

It’s a common mistake among students. They assume “CAN” follows the same rules as other verb conjugations but we know it’s not like that. It’s a modal verb, so the rules change!

 I’m constantly striving to create more ways of teaching English to children in a fun way.

This is one of my ESL Exercises I use to engrain the correct sentence structure in their minds. We repeated each sentence 7 times increasing the energy level each time. As you can see by the smiles on their faces… they are having FUN while learning!
