Learning a second language through videos

How can videos help students learn a second language?


We will discuss be focusing on how videos can be used to achieve progress in second language acquisition and create new and different learning opportunities for students. Videos can be a great tool to motivate young learners, as we know that most of them are visual learners. However, the use of videos can involve many different learning styles, not only visual. The workshop will explain why and how. Activities based on videos deeply involve learners especially when they collaborate and communicate with each other, therefore eliciting critical and creative thinking.
