I can, I can’t, Can you?

 

I CAN I CAN'T

The modal verb – Can

Here is a nice simple exercise I do to teach the modal verb Can.

If you teach ESL students, make sure they understand the meaning of the verb before doing the exercise. Once they have a basic understanding, you can start.

I CAN I CAN'T

Place the two speech bubbles (I can, I can’t) on the table, and ask each student if they can do the action verb. Make sure they answer by saying I can or I can’t and not just by saying either yes or no.

To spice it up a bit, use the speech bubbles (Yes, I can, No, I can’t) to help them to distinguish between the affirmative and the negative.

Make sure you get them to pronounce the letter t at the end of can’t especially if working with ESL students.

Here’s a nice little video that you can use with this lesson. 👍😊
