This is the first post in a weekly or bi-weekly series I’ll be publishing regularly. It will share a few posts from around the Web related to ESL or EFL that have caught my attention:

stuck in a lift is a hilarious video that was posted by ELTbites, along with suggestions on how to use it with students. There is one line said by a character that probably makes it unusable in a K-12 classroom, but it’s well worth watching.

Teacher: Talk in pairs. Student: Why? comes from Box of Chocolates. The thirty-four comments off excellent reasons to give students for why there is value in having them speak with each other — even if neither is fluent in English.

Teacher James provides some excellent Silent Movies, along with suggestions on how to use them in class for language development.
