YouTube in the classroom

I got some CSWE 1 students to watch an animated Arnie/terminator saying “I’ll be back” on You Tube as part of a lesson on note writing eg: I’m at school. I’ll be back at 6:00. They loved it!

I also found some other interesting sites you might want to check out.
PodEnglish has some good beginner/intermediate podcasts. Here's one on complaining and the past continuous:

The Australian network http://australianetwork.com/ has vodcasts, quizzes etc with Aussie content. They have different programs for varying levels from elementary to advanced: living English, English bites, Nexus... Here's an example

They post their older videos on you tube
This is an English bites episode on Quorn Store: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=L6pmB670TPY
Another good site is EnglishPod : you need to subscribe to get transcripts and worksheets, but you can listen for free. http://www.englishpod.com/podcast/

You seem to be ahead of us all! I hope however that you are getting something from the sessions.
