Top 5 Funniest Videos about Teaching English

Time for some levity!  It helps us survive our day in and day out teaching grind. It brings things into perspective.


I’ve written previously some top 5 lists about teaching/studying English.  Hilarious stuff there. However, I think I have some equally hilarious but showing teachers in classrooms. So let’s go. Here are my top 5 funniest videos about teaching English.

1. Katerine Tate and Comic Relief.Imagine her in your class!  Sterling – ‘nough said.

2. Stripes: Harold Remis. I think this typifies many English teacher’s first time in front of a class.

3. Mind your language. Classic series that really is worth watching in full.

4. Bud Light Super Bowl Commercial 2007

    Nice selection. I thought you’d choose Catherine Tate’s ‘I did TEFL in my gap year’ sketch. In case you’ve never seen it…

    Yep – know that one. It is truly something special, especially for talking about the paralinguistic features of language. Meaning is a much deeper topic than us teachers usual admit. But alas, she wasn’t in “a classroom” but glad you’ve reminded us of this. Thanks,

    I use the Catherine Tate’s “Funny Translator” video (might be the same as “TEFL in my gap year”) as a starter to a lesson on attitudes toward accented English. It is always well received and realized that languages are simply a set of sounds.
