Online videos can be an ideal supplement to both traditional classroom teaching and online tutoring in order to create a blended learning environment with many benefits to teachers and learners.Useful videos can feature authentic dialogues, presentations and speeches and selected dos and don’ts. They can be used for building-up vocabulary and useful phrases, for teaching pronunciation as well as initiating role-plays and discussions.This session will show the practical usage of online videos and its integration in Language Training as well as a reflection of its strengths and limitations.
