“Let’s Learn English” From VOA Looks Like A Nice Online Video Resource

| 0 comments

 

Let’s Learn English is a series of online video lessons from Voice of America Learning English.

Each video comes with an online quiz, supplemental videos for vocabulary and speaking practices, a downloadable worksheet and more.  The videos are provided in three different levels of English proficiency.

I probably wouldn’t use them as a class lesson, but I could certainly see giving students the option of using them regularly when we visit the computer lab.  I would imagine they would probably just watch each video and then answer the quizzes.

Their lay-out and organization leave a bit to be desired.   In many ways, content and activities are similar to Annenberg’s older-but-still-good Connect With English (see The New “Connect With English” Site Has Got To Be One Of This Year’s Best New Sites For ELLs). However, the Connect With English site is much more user-friendly and better designed.

But the content and activities are good, and I think students would still like them.

I’m adding this info to The Best Popular Movies/TV Shows For ESL/EFL (& How To Use Them).
