How has the role of video changed in language teaching in the past few years? - Interview with Kieran Donaghy 

Hello from Barcelona, the Film and Video in Language Teaching course, where we recorded a special episode for the iSLCollective video quiz channel. In it we ask Kieran Donaghy of film-english.com, who runs the course, how he views the changes in ELT regarding video in the past few years. 

Enjoy!

Anna Csíky, iSLCollective Teacher Trainer
