An Introduction to Our Videos
Videos are the bread-and-butter of Insights to English. Our videos feature sleek yet simple animation with a conversational voice-over and are under 10 minutes long. Each video covers one topic or methodology, and related videos are linked together in a series.
The topics are based on ones in English course books. We're not creating a new curriculum, but rather working within the standard ones you as teachers are likely already using. Scroll down to see the topics we've covered so far.
Videos that come in a series typically build off one another, so how much of a series you watch depends upon your students' level. For example, if your students are at an elementary level, you might just want to watch the first video or two in a series; on the other hand, if your students are more advanced, you might want to watch the entire series. (Although the earlier videos in a series might be easy for advanced students, we still recommend watching the full series in order since - as mentioned - the videos often build off each other. Plus, it doesn't hurt to have a nice review.)
The purpose of the videos is for teachers to watch them, learn from the insights they reveal, then teach those same insights to their students. That said, the videos were designed such that students could follow along if you choose to show them the videos directly. The choice is ultimately yours.
