“Broadcast Yourself” The Use Of You Tube In Language Classrooms

  1. 1. “Broadcast Yourself”: The use of YouTube in language classrooms Cem BALÇIKANLI University of Florida, Center for European Studies E-mail: balcikanli@ufl.edu 12th Annual NCOLCTL Conference, 2009 Madison, USA
  2. 2. Outline * Online Language Learning Opportunites * Long Live, You Tube! * Some Applications * WATCH OUT! * Conclusion
  3. 3. Language learning should provide exposure to authentic language use and teachers need to help students explore online learning possibilities (Blin 2004; Groß and Wolf 2001).

  5. 5. YouTube, a video-sharing website where users can upload, view and share video clips, has made it possible for anyone who can use a computer to post a video that millions of people can within minutes.
  6. 6. LANGUAGE LEARNING ?
  7. 7. A student’s comment I have found great value in the use of You Tube for language learning. It provides a great deal of opportunities to hear native speakers, as many times as I want, when I want. Listening to Turkish songs helps my pronunciation as well and Turkish shows help me in understanding everyday language. Doing both of these also provides me with first hand encounters of Turkish culture, that I would be without were it not for You Tube.
