Videos for Teaching ESL Classes (CC)

Dear colleagues,

I am searching for short videos that would be useful for ESL classes—either shown by the teacher as listening comprehension or used as examples of the type of videos students should look for, come to class with, and present and analyze for fellow students—preferably clips with subtitles (CC=closed captians).

If you use some of TED Talks that I mention in QualityTime-ESL: The Digital Resource Book Version 2.0, you could even ask students to practice being one of these outstanding speakers and give a short 3-minute "performance" in front of the others using the same words. Scripts are available on at TED.com. This technique is used in "speech classes" in the USA.

I have tried to classify the videos. So far I have these sections in the left-hand column of the homepage:

Inspiring Videos

Science and Technology Videos

Short Video Presentations

Short Video Documentaries about Britain or the USA

Debate Provoking Videos

Videos on Web Technology

Humorous Videos

Teacher Training Videos

Whenever I find a version with closed-captions in English (from dotsub.com) or other sources, I will include it too.

Feel free to suggest other videos that you have found.

Kind regards,
