The Use of Videos in ELT

Speaker: Takako Seito

Takako Seito from Tokyo University of Science in Suwa will show how to motivate large classes through the use of video-based activities. In this workshop she will demonstrate how authentic film scripts can stimulate students to listen, write and talk in English. She particularly aims to activate their knowledge of the themes shown during the film. Also, practical ways to create original materials from the internet databases, videos, DVDs and TV programs will be explained.

She graduated from Jochi University after which she completed a MA in English literature from Waseda University.
