Guidelines taken from ESLVIdeo.com:

“Introduction and Guided Practice:
1. Introduce the vocabulary.
2. Play the video full screen from beginning to end.
3. Resize the screen so the students can see the quiz.
4. Play only the first segment. As a class, read and answer question 1.
5. Repeat for questions 2-8. (…)
6. Discuss the components of the quiz: a question, 2 incorrect answers, and 1 correct answer.
7. Put the students in pairs. (…)
8. Have the students write the question for quiz question number two: “How’s the weather?”
9. Play only video segment 2 a couple of times. (…)
10. Repeat for segments 3-8.
11. In larger groups, have the students ask and answer questions about the weather in other countries.

I attended a workshop across two weekends on teaching business, young learners and exam preparation which were equally as well-planned and engaging. I’m sad it’s over!

This is a great course (…) In particular, Julia offers impeccable support throughout the whole process and dedicates a lot of time to her interns!

I really enjoyed the blend of online training with teaching in Madrid, giving me a chance to implement what I had learnt. The reflective diaries were also really helpful to delve deeper into the theory behind teaching.
