Video materials in English language teaching
An approach to their design and use
Most materials available to users of video in English Language Teaching were designed neither for the ELT classroom nor for video: they originated as TV programmes or as films produced for a native speaker audience. An analysis of the characteristics of video and its possible roles at different stages in a language programme underlies the design of a set of video sequences, Video English, intended specifically for classroom use, within the framework of a methodology which puts the emphasis on communicative competence. Similar principles are exemplified in a discussion of another published series, Television English, which is based on BBC archive material. In conclusion some findings of research into non-verbal communication are considered in relation to the use of video materials in the language classroom.
