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).
You can see all previous editions of this list, as well as other “Best” lists related to videos, here.
Here are my choices for the past six months (some may be more serious):
Students could watch this short video and talk and write about what they saw. ALERT – it includes farting, which adolescents will love 🙂
I have watched this 322 times today 🤣🤣🤣 pic.twitter.com/TdFQZyWTKH
