Aspects of Video Movie English Teaching.
Wood, David John
Journal of Chikushi Jogakuen University, n11 p93-104 Jan 1999
A discussion of the use of movies on videotape in the English-as-a-Second-Language (ESL) classroom begins with a brief review of the history and emergence of videotape recordings as a popular technology. The advantages of video as a language teaching aid are then examined, including its instructional flexibility, exposure to paralinguistic features, interest and ability to capture the imagination, ability to activate passive knowledge, capacity to extend the range of language environments studied, and potential for cultural content. Literature on the use of video in ESL instruction is reviewed, addressing such topics as its instructional effectiveness, video selection, length of segment used, videos' educational vs. entertainment value, use of content for classroom discussion, video use for testing, and types of commercial and authentic materials available for classroom use. Contains 16 references. (MSE)
