Kim Oliver ESOL Web Links
Tech up your teaching! Every good teacher knows that the resources outside the classroom are as important as those inside for students to improve their mastery of the English language! The internet is now a gold mine of resources, but some are more helpful than others! So I have created a page with the best of the best web resources available for ESL teachers and students.
These 18-minute talks are from the world’s most interesting thinkers, creators and leaders, who are challenged to give the “talk of their lives” in a fixed time. There are more than 200, and all free. Great for advanced oral communication.
Video clips with lesson plans
Education Clip Library
Education Clip Library a library of educationally contextualized video clips. It covers all major curriculum areas. Requires registration.
ESL Movie notes
Quite outdated movies, but each guide is a detailed synopsis of a movie that consists of a summary of the plot, a list of the major characters, a glossary of vocabulary and various cultural reference, and questions for ESL class discussion.
Short how-to videos; great for process listening/note-taking.
Free full-length documentaries! Over 500 on file. You can even pick five that you like, email them to someone, or put the widget on your own page!
Increasingly popular site with lots of current and classic tv shows, older movies and current movie clips. You can find videos through the channels (topic) section at the top.
Lots of popular TV shows here!
