Many others I wanted to include but alas they weren’t on youtube – but find them where I’ve collected them against father time – on EFL Classroom 2.0.

  1. David, thank you so much for all your hard work. I greatly appreciate being introduced to so many wonderful videos. Brilliant!

  2. Helen says:

    Thanks very much for this! I’ve used some of these videos too and the students really enjoy them. One of the things I find most time consuming is finding appropriate materials because there is so much to choose from – this will be a great place to start. Thanks again!

    You are welcome and I completely understand your difficulties. Partly (and mostly) why I started helping teachers online and really getting everyone sharing so it is much easier to sort through stuff. Teachers helping teachers.

    thanks for the comment!
