Using screenshots to predict content - How to teach English using videos EP03

In this episode we will be showing you how screenshots taken from a video can be used to generate interest and get students to predict the content. Checking their ideas against what they later hear and see in the video can also function as a great first listening task. 

We’re using two amazing short videos in the tutorial, both of which we found at Kieran Donaghy's popular Film English site: Fear of Flying and 5 things every presenter needs to know about people . Also download this and this accompanying worksheet we've made. :) 

Enjoy!
