As a French trainer teaching English to adults, this video is fine for beginners. A bit more questions would have been better. But thanks for sharing.

This is great stuff. Nevertheless I wanted to assign it as homework for my students. I copied and pasted the link to them, but it didn't work. They had to register or log in in order to watch the video. Too bad! I will have to show it in class I guess. Thank you
