Why use videos to teach kids? : Using Mr. BEAN movies to do ESL Kids projects Using videos in the ESL classroom can greatly speed up the learning process. Using videos is an easy way to teach and practice new English vocabulary. With kids, it gets them talking as you elicit responses through well guided questions. At the end children learn new words and expressions and consolidate what they have already learnt. The main advantage here lies in the fact that they don't even realize they are learning English and they enjoy it. Classroom management problems are greatly reduced. However, to make videos successful in your classrooms you must start by planning carefully. One video that has been very successful with kids in the ESL industry are MR. Bean Movies. Sometimes, when one looks at the videos and episodes of Mr. Bean, one wonders whether the movies were created for helping TEFL kids teachers. It is for this reason that we have decided to build lots of video activities around Mr. Bean. Most of these worksheets can be used in isolation, or together as part of an on-going project. For more on how to use videos in the classroom, read our article ESL Video Techniques. Below is a Mr. Bean (Rowan Atkinson) video project. This should help you learn how to plan your own Mr. Bean Projects.
