Anyone who knows me or who reads this blog with regularity knows that I'm a BIG fan of TED. I think this is because TED has given me so many teaching tools. It has made me believe in the power of web video as a teaching and learning tool. Below, you will find two TED talks about this subject.
I would also like to recommend a site I've just discovered, called engVid. They provide free video lessons for English students, as well as resources that you can read or print out. For people without access to teachers who are native speakers of English, this could be a very useful resource to supplement your classes or independent study.
Here are the two presentations. I hope you enjoy them, and that you're about to begin a wonderful weekend!
