Youtube for english language learning

  1. 1. FOR ENGLISH LANGUAGE LEARNING
  2. 2.   Online learning opportunities and interactive Web 2.0 has provided language learners possibilities in creating s real world language environment in the classroom. A video sharing website where users can upload, view and share video clips, Youtube is one of the greatest things Web 2.0 offering us. (Lacy,2008) YouTube is a compound noun of “you” and “tube”, in which “Tube” is American slang language means television, so YouTube would mean something like a "TV in your hands
  3. 3.    Three former PayPal employees(Chad Hurley, Steve Chen and Jawed Karim) created Youtube in February 2005. In November 2006, Youtube was brought by Google Inc. For US $1.65 billion and is now operated as a subsdiary of Google. The company is in ,San Bruno, California and uses Adobe Flash Video technology to display a wide variety of user-generated video content.
  4. 4.   Most of the content on Youtube are movie clips, TV clips, music videos, as well as amateur contents such as video bloggings and short original videos. These has been uploaded by individuals although media corporations including CBS and BBC and other organizations offer some of their materials via the site.
  5. 5.    Unregistered users can watch the videos, while registered users are permitted to upload an unlimited number of videos. Accounts of registered users are called as “channels”. There are, on avarege, more than 65.000 uploads and 100 million videos being watched daily, with 30 million visitors per month, it is the fourthmost visited website in the web (Lacy,2008)
  6. 6.    As far as language learning is concerned, Youtube is an unlimited source for language acquisition. To illustrate, one can listen to all kinds of spoken language(formal, neutral, informal) and genres(songs, parodies, debates, political speeches, talk shows, lectures) and learn a lot of vocabulary in context, which will help memorize easily. The program can be paused to check understanding, invite students’ comments, make predictions or let students ask questions as potential investors
  7. 7.    Language learning is much more than classroom experience. Out-of-class experiences occupy a key role in offering vast range of possibilities to L2 learners. Youtube gives students control over the section of materials and over the strategies to use, and independent action. Therefore, it plays pivot role in practicing the target language, engaging students in active and productive projects, preparing them for likely future encounters, learning more about cultures and poising than for becoming autonomous learners. (Mc Bride,2009)
  8. 8.  Also, language teachers can take advantage of Youtube in their classrooms to make the learning process more meaningful, more fun and more independent. Otherhand, students feel as if they were in front of a teacher.
  9. 9.       There are different styles and genres of the language available on Youtube. You can be exposed to music, commercials, ads, comedy sketches, conferences and programmes. Youtube can help learners explore the target culture in a variety of ways. Youtube encourages students to watch videos and clips continuously. Also displaying Tv shows are authentic language whichis valuable for vocabulary and grammar retention. Youtube gives alternatives to students with different systems.
  10. 10.    Youtube for schools lets schools access free educational Youtube videos while limiting access to other Youtube contents. Students can learn from more than 400.000 educational videos, from well-known organizations like Standford, BBC and TED, and from up-and-coming Youtube partners with millions of views, like Khan Academy, Steve Spangler Science and numberphile. Schools can also customise their Youtube For schools experience, adding videos that are only viewable within their school network.
