Enhancing a Language Learning System with Videos, Pt. 2
A video can be used to introduce a language topic, motivate students, or as a reward after an exam. Language students can watch short clips via an LMS and study “real life situations.”
Another group activity for a video-aided language learning system is a character study. Ask students to focus on each character in the show or movie, using vocabulary words to describe a their personalities. Who is the hero/villain? For weaker or younger students, have them listen for specific vocabulary or adjectives, or verbs in the present/past tense, etc.
Keep in mind that an important aspect of integrating video into a learning system is organization. Prepare pre-video questions and activities, as well as post-viewing comprehension activities. Divide students into groups and discuss the answers.
