Present Continuous You Tube video

This is a useful video for teaching, practising or reviewing the Present Continuous with low level students. 

I skipped over the first 30 seconds when I used it in class today as the speaker is quite difficult to understand and makes some errors (“simple present continuous tense”, “let’s go on!”).

The music made my students laugh, and the video itself has some natural pause points where you can elicit the answers to questions displayed on the screen from students.  (The answers subsequently appear on the video).
