Three sentences - How to teach English using videos EP 04 

In this episode we are bringing you a simple but effective activity that helps focus on language and tests students' memory. We talk about how you can use it with a 1-1 student and a group at various levels - and add a possible extension, where you can create your very own custom video quiz as a class using questions generated by the students.

The video quiz we are using to demonstrate the activity can be found here.

Enjoy!
