I use short, funny video clips a lot when I’m teaching ELLs, and you can read in detail about how I use them in The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them). In short, there are many ways to use them that promote speaking, listening, writing and reading (including having students describe – in writing and verbally – a chronological description of what they saw).
I’m adding this post to All 2017 “Best” Lists – In One Place!
I’ve also published quite a few “fun videos” lists during the previous ten years of this blog. You can find those in these lists:
Okay, now here are my choices for The Best Fun Videos For English Language Learners In 2017 — Part Two:
Simon’s Cat videos are always great for ELLs, and here are five new ones:
You can bet I’ll be using this short video when my ELL Beginner students are learning about animals. They’ll be able to write and talk about what happens in the clip – after they stop laughing!

This short video on texting moves from funny to tragic pretty quickly, and is accessible to English Language Learners.
Having them talk and write about what happened in the funny parts, and then doing the same about the serious message at the end would be a great learning opportunity!
