Before you watch, you may want to read the descriptions on the series page for that video. You'll learn what to expect from each video, as well as what your students should already know before learning the methods taught in that video. Make sure you review those things before diving into something new.
An Introduction to Our Videos
Our grammar videos are 4-9 minutes long, use engaging motion graphics, and feature conversational voice-overs.
The videos are made for teachers. The purpose is to demonstrate how to teach a given grammar topic using an alternate approach. Having learned this new method, teachers should then apply their own teaching style as they present the topic to their students.
But the videos don't stand alone; there may be pre-requisite lessons needed, students might have questions, and the grammar point should be practiced. We'll leave all that to you teachers; the videos just demonstrate a new perspective from which to present the topic.
Students can directly benefit from the videos as well. While the videos aren't aimed at them, they are designed in such a way that students could follow along, although teachers may need to pause along the way since the videos move pretty quickly.
Perhaps a better option than simply showing your students a video is to use our slideshows, which feature the same graphics. That way, you can move at a pace appropriate for your class, make the lesson more interactive, and incorporate your own teaching style.
Each video is part of at least one series. You may want to watch a full series in the order we suggest on that series page, as some videos build off others. They tend to go in order from lower proficiency levels to higher ones, so how much of a series you watch may depend on the level of your class.

The fundamentals are for all levels. We have some videos that are great for beginner/elementary levels, including an entire fundamentals series. However, intermediate and even advanced students can benefit from these videos, as it may help them better understand the foundations of English language.
Our methods do not replace your curriculum, but rather supplement it. Continue using whatever syllabus and books you already have in place; our videos and other resources simply help you explain grammar topics more effectively.
Our topics are modeled after ESOL standards, but they can be applied for native speakers as well.
Each series comes with a guide that includes a viewing order, a list of prerequisites, difficulty levels, bonus notes, printouts, slideshows, an ancillary topics, a glossary, and more.
