FEATURED ABSTRACT

Creating Listening Activities Using Television Shows

Using television shows in the language classroom can interest students and motivate them to learn, as well as provide authentic linguistic and cultural input.

The presenter will discuss the benefits and challenges of using television shows in the classroom, and will provide guidelines and examples of effective, meaningful, language focused activities using television shows.
