Here’s a little video shot and edited yesterday for my group’s final project in Linguistics 480, Computer Assisted Language Learning (CALL), with Dr. Trude Heift @ Simon Fraser University, Spring 2012.
The idea was to make a content-based video on the topic of food that could be easily incorporated into an ESL lesson. Each of the members in our group then has to create a mock ESL lesson plan incorporating this CALL technology for the second part of this assignment.
There are a few simple lessons that this video could be used for:
- Introducing imperative verb forms
- Food vocabulary
- Food preparation verbs
- Reviewing numbers (eg. “Step Six: Dice The Onion”)
Total runtime: ~4 minutes.
Feel free to use this video as part of your own ESL lesson planning.
“Lettuce” know if you find it useful!
Thanks to Lauren and Andrea for being really great to work with for this project.
