Lights! Camera! Action!
Reality TV shows have become very popular in many different countries. Many people would love to be on them. But that is not always easy since there are so many people who are competing for the few available slots.
But there is another way! We can create our own “reality” shows and practice English at the same time.
Recently, I started using a Flip video in my classes. Initially the students feel shy, but they are assured that the video will be kept private and that it is a teaching tool. I have found that taking a video of the student is very helpful for them to spot and correct their grammatical and pronunciation errors.
What about you? Have you tried taking a video of yourself talking English? Try it. And then let me know what you thought of the experience.
