Hi everyone. Do you like to use TV and video in ESL class? How do you do it? It can be hard for students to understand, but they enjoy watching it. Thank you!

students motly love video. Even if it;s just a video of a teacher explaining something, it's different for them; a change from the usual routine.

 The problem with TV is it's non-Interactive. I'd recommend having students watch videos/tv as homework assignments off-hours and use your classroom time for more interactive activities. For some students their time in class is their only opportunity to interact with others in English.

I think that if the TV is linked to your learning focus then it really can be of great benefit. It is a different way for the students to learn and with you tube channels it makes it easy to really make sure it links in. Please visit this channel there are lots of great videos to help with your learning. http://www.youtube.com/user/skypeenglishschool
