A1/A2 Stative verbs

What are stative verbs? This is important for learners that are now being introduced to the present continuous (I’m writing right now), and need to learn why they can’t say things like ‘I’m loving you’ when a famous fast food chain uses this as a slogan and a famous rock band from the 80s even said ‘I’m Still Loving You’ in one of their most popular hits. By tackling the ‘stative verb’ issue from an early stage, we’ll probably avoid learners making funny structures that are later on very difficult to get rid of because they have become a habit, and although I’m not really sure if this will be effective or not, I’m going to try it out anyway. Here’s a short video that introduces the very basics and after there’s an activity that focuses on some very typical mistakes that we need to avoid.

After, you may want to do the activities that I have attached below.
