I was experimenting with the karaoke dialogues (and made a book - Go HERE ). But would videos like this be useful to students/teachers?

That's a good idea to be done in class. I am really jealous of you ddeubl. Thank you very much for helping teachers and giving them the bright ideas you have.

Thanks for the comment and good cheer salam. 


I've put up more blank dialogues on the Karaoke Dialogue page. They are pretty cool. More coming in that player. Just play and let the students try to fill in the blanks. Goes with the book that will be available another day! Click above! 


I'll load up the blank dialogues onto the Karaoke page soon.

Thank you is more than enough! Also knowing some students will be helped - that's what drives me to do what I do. 


I kept the book very simple but the blanks in the dialogues can be personalized, I think that is key. So they understand the dialogue, practice but then can make it their own and be creative. At home, they can even practice with the blank lines to really get a feel for being "natural". 


I hope to get something like this on EnglishCentral but it will take a while and some work with our speech team. We already have a hidden challenge (words taken away) but key is to get recording of the whole dialogue and also blanks of whole sentences where students can record.  

Finally - yes, use the karaoke player. Much better quality, control, reliability. You'll find them if you follow the links...
