Video Response – It’s Fun!

youtube-video-responseJust watching a video is great practice and a great way to learn English.

However, it’s great to also practice your English after watching a video by discussing the video and your own response to what you watched.  You can do this with a friend or with an EnglishCentral tutor or with a teacher or classmate.

Video response really gets students thinking critically about media and becoming aware of their own reactions to media.

One common way to do this is with a K-W-L Chart Download the chart   Students write down what they know about the video topic and also what they “wonder” or want to know. After watching, they write down what they learned and share with others.

Also, a simple reaction sheet that can be filled out while watching a video could be like this one. Video Response Sheet  Or this more detailed one – Video Response Worksheet Expanded

But the best way to respond to a video is through a series of questions or prompts. Here is one we’ve created. Video Response Questions  These questions (below), really get students speaking and are a great compliment to any EnglishCentral video lesson!
