ESL Videos for your classes
« on: June 24, 2014, 07:57:14 AM »
Hello, my name is Adam. I'm a teacher in South Korea right now. Over the past 3 years I've made videos to accompany curriculum lessons that have been well received amongst students, Korean teachers, and native teachers. I found this site through site referral data on my website thanks to rstoker's post. We have an identical site called waygook.org (waygook is the Korean word for foreign/foreigner). So I registered to give you more information about the videos to help you use them.

Keep in mind that the target audience are Korean children and I'm American. So a few videos include Korean translations, others reference Korean pop culture, US culture, etc (for example, in a video about colors, I ask a horse "is it red?" And he says '네', which is Korean for yes, which also sounds like neigh)

Subjects are defined on the video title (which I just used from the lesson title, or adapted slightly). eg 'It's on the chair' is about prepositions, 'What color is it?', 'She's wearing a red cap' (what people are wearing).

First, here is my site (as rstoker generously mentioned). At the top are the links to 2 albums. 1 has the videos without subtitles. The other contains subtitles (the subs are embedded into the video itself).

http://www.adamthomasphotography.com/

Next, I created a video guide on Facebook that lists the spoken dialogue in each video so you don't need to watch a video to know exactly what it will say. Also has links to each video and Google Drive to download. The FB page is also for my photography and video releases.

https://www.facebook.com/media/set/?set=a.472363522790877.126622.472288439465052&type=1

Lastly, every video is available for download in 720p mp4s. I use these in my classroom rather than my site. These are easier to use rather than the internet. Videos average 50-100mb, so it's not too bad on a USB.

If you have any questions, please feel free to ask. I hope these are really helpful for you and your students!


Also, as I mentioned earlier, http://www.waygook.org/ is our site in Korea. Check it out for tons of resources :)

 My kids go crazy for your videos. I'm now teaching 1-3rd grade in China. Thanks so much for all the work you put into them, they're awesome!

Thanks for all the awesome videos Adam.  I've been using them for a couple years now.  The kids think they're hilarious and I've shown so many of them they think either you're my friend or I'm you.  I found all your videos when I was teaching in Korea and now I'm using them in China.  I still use waygook a lot, but it's starting to get pretty disorganized and a lot of it is based on the Korean textbooks, so we made this site as an alternative for teachers in China and we also plan on keeping it well organized and cross referenced so it's easier to find the material you want for your lesson.

Thanks! :) Yeah Waygook.org is getting really cluttered these days. Hopefully you guys can avoid that. Good luck! If you have any questions just send me a message on here! :)
