Great short videos to use in your classes

    Hello everyone!
    I'm writing you to share with one great resource with videos in English to teach your students speaking (+reading, listening and writing) skills + some cultural moments and motivate students to have fun while learning English.
    You can find there great short video material with prepared for you 4 parts: 1) watching an original clip, 2) subtitled viewing,  3) list of key words from the video and 4) replaying of original clip.
    OR some songs to learn irregular verbs, parts of body and other topics that we usually teach in our classes.

    My students like when I use a video like a bonus in my speaking classes. So, usually I teach a topic from the curriculum and at the end of the lesson spend 15-20 minutes for learning English via video. I prepare 1-3 general questions for the first watching. Then I give more detailed specific task for the second watching with subtitles. Sometimes I demonstrate a list of words from the video before the second watching and ask my students to guess their meaning from the context. Then they are interested to watch again and compare their ideas with the list from the video.

    You can find videos in EXCITING ENGLISH.
    Hope you will enjoy teaching English using videos. Good luck!
