  • What I ’ m going to show you is part of a larger website for ESL teachers and students - http://www.simpleenglishvideos.com, created and featuring Vicki Hollett, a name that some of you may be familiar with, as she wrote business books Ín at the Deep End´ and ´Business Opportunities ’ . I ’ m going to focus on a section called ‘ One Minute English Lessons ’ .
  • She explains and illustrates these aspects of language in 60 (actually sometimes 90) seconds. I ’ m going to suggest omse ways we can use these in our teaching.
  • She explains and illustrates these aspects of language in 60 (actually sometimes 90) seconds. I ’ m going to suggest omse ways we can use these in our teaching.
  • We can use these videoas ‘ straight ’ , for example students watch the video, then tell each other what the differences are between the two words are, as with this example of ‘ sympathetic ’ and ‘ nice ’ .
  • You could get your students to think more about the language point before they watch the video by extracting some of the marker sentences and providing them with a pre-viewing task.
  • Here are some some of the illustrative sentences used to explain ‘ by and until ’ . Copy and paste them from the transcript under the video and make sure students understand the difference situations, then ask them to find the words ‘ by ’ and ‘ until ’ and in pairs / small groups, see if they can decide what the difference is between the two words.
  • When students have discussed the questions, you can then play the video for them to compare their answers, listening out for the rule given by Vicki, in this case: By: at or before a specific time. Until: for situations that continue up to a certain time. You can then get students to rehearse and act out some of the short sequences.
  • Another way to diagnse your students ’ current understanding and help them to listen actively is to ask them a simple open question about a language point such as this …
  • You can then play the video for them to see how much information they had in common with Vicki ’ s explanation and illustrations.
  • Another way to make use of the transcript below the video is to use it as a gap-fill, as in this video showing the difference between ‘ miss and lose ’ .
  • Students read and fill in the gaps with the correct form of ‘ miss or lose ’ .
  • They then watch the video and compare to their answers.
  • Of course, you could give your students the task to watch a specific video or videos for homework and report back to the rest of the class next lesson. There are other language points which could perhaps benefit from Vicki ’ s treatment, such as
  • Finally, you can also get your students to make their own versions of One Minute Videos. Here ’ s one way of getting them to develop a video
  • What we haven ’ t done is to look at follow-up work from these lesson ideas. Any thoughts that have struck you with any other ideas?
