Colour-coding grammar

I had a 25-minute grammar tutorial with a teenage student who struggled with forms of the present simple. this piece of paper was the result of the that. I can’t remember the exact question I started with, but the sentences are from her and my lives, and are variations on the same basic structure, colour-coded as we went along so she could see what the patterns are in the grammar. The yellow was used to show that the auxiliary is the same in both questions and negatives.

Do you use similar techniques to help students to understand grammar?

  1. My favourite online YouTuber who does this to great effect is Japanese Ammo. She takes great care to colour code her grammar in many what must be painstaking hours, but the result is she is the best YouTube teacher I have seen on the platform.

    Check out an example of her video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P2KS94qQXxw

    I’ve tried the same teaching online but never really nailed her way of presentation!
