Matsumoto, Emi; O'Donnell, William A.
Online Submission, Paper presented at the Annual CamTESOL Conference on English Language Teaching: "Building Bridges to the World" (4th, Phnom Penh, Cambodia, Feb 23-24, 2008)
This paper, based on a presentation given under the same name at the 4th Annual CamTESOL Conference on English Language Teaching: "Building Bridges to the World" on 24 February 2008 in Phnom Penh, Cambodia, offers advice on integrating the teaching of the four language skills (reading, writing, listening, and speaking) in their cultural context through the use of video clips. The paper targets teachers whose students are from the medium to high level of English proficiency. Samples lessons with differing emphasis are provided. The paper concludes that properly used videos can be an effective means of teaching and learning the English skills necessary for bridging the gap between cultures.
