Hi, I'm a teacher at a new Madrid academy (could tell you by MP if you really want to know its name) and I'm kind of desperate for content.
The problem is that students only listen to me and to each other. I have no problem with written exercises, but I'm worried about their pronunciation when we do something spoken. I've tried videos but those only work wih intermediate levels, not beginners.
(Seriously, search "Donut Hell" in Youtube. That's the closes I've gotten to a video they can digest!).
Another problem is that "easy" videos are usually from cartoons. And pure listening exercises are a bit too strict and not realistic. So I want some videos or recordings that are easy, but not infantile (the adults in my group would feel insulted) and a bit realistic. Asking for too much? Any suggestions are welcome!
As you see, this is my first post, so I hope to learn a lot. And I'm sorry if this is not the adequate subforum for this kind of post.
Have you flicked through any of these?
