Use both the subtitled and non-subtitled versions.
An excellent way to present vocabulary and word associations – showing how words are linked and should be learned in this “web”.
Students review by matching the vocabulary in the video in a worksheet. First play the unsubtitled version and see what students know. Then let them attempt the worksheet. Play the subtitled version and have the students try the worksheet again. Finally play the subtitled version again to check the worksheet.
Use with the vocabulary game sheet “Word Wars” where in pairs students say a word to their partner and their partner must as quick as possible state an associated word. Lots of fun! The teacher can model first for the whole class.
Now find all these resources on ELT Buzz Teaching Resources!
Great idea! Can I edit the subtitles? Some words are American English
Unfortunately the subtitles are hard coded and not easily changed.
You'll have to use a program likevideopad (which I recommend) to add new subtitles to the one without. Or maybe have a conversation about the differences between American and British English and use like that?
We have nice study sets for this video on Gif Lingua now!
Here are the flashcards from the quizlet sets for each book. Simply cut up and have students match and play. Or do the quizzes on Gif Lingua and teachers can also print out tests on Quizlet to use the sets in class as printables.
Unfortunately the version with subtitles is no longer accessible. Can it be recovered????
I just updated the link. Should work now.
I've been on the phone a few hours today. Mediafire resources not available. Seems some members abused the service - we used to share the id/pw. I'm working on it ... just another day :) Enjoy the video lesson.
Teachers can register on Gif Lingua and download the books as PPTs (sometimes takes a few moments once you press "Download" for the ppt to compile and start downloading, just wait).
I downloaded the books there and put into one ppt. Might be handy.
