Videos To Inspire Students

I just did a write up about the top 5 “funniest” videos about language teaching/learning. Well received and I got lots of nice comments. So – I’ve decided to continue the series and reveal some more “gems” buried here in the hundreds of videos on ELT Buzz

I really think a BIG part of teaching is being a motivator. Especially with language where there often lacks a lot of intrinsic motivation (the stuff that lasts). Language takes a lot of time compared to other subjects and we just don’t have that in our classrooms. So, if we can inspire our students to learn English or just to “reach for the stars”, all the better. They’ll be able to get there on our own. So without further ado – here are my top for motivating and inspiring students. Please add your own mentions too!
