Can Do Cubes acts as a link between the written and the spoken forms of the English language. Like the spoken form, individual words can be chosen, or taken at random, and combined with other words to form language „chunks‟. These „chunks‟ can be cut, extended, changed or corrected at will. Students are, therefore, encouraged to experiment freely with the language. Like the written form, the words can be placed together to reveal structures or grammatical rules, or simply to start a piece of writing or something that might suggest a subject for acting out.

By stimulating the interaction of an individual‟s visual, auditory and kinaesthetic perceptual systems, learning is enjoyed and enhanced.
