| 0 comments

 

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’ve also published quite a few “fun videos” lists during the previous eleven years of this blog. You can find those in these lists:

These new Simon’s Cat videos (along with many of the other videos on this list) can be shown to English Language Learners and they can write and tell about what happened.

I’m adding this video to The Best Resources For Helping Beginner ELLs Learn About Animals.

It would be a nice clip to have students learn about the names of the animals depicted in it, as well as talking about its plot and message.

Oddbods is a popular YouTube series that also offers engaging videos that ELLs, especially younger ELLs, can watch and then describe what they saw. Here’s an example:
