Videos can be a great addition to the classroom but they are not just listening exercises with nice pictures! Visual means of communication are becoming increasingly prevalent as mobile devices give many of us instant access to video-sharing websites and videos on social media. Is it time to re-examine the role of video in the language classroom?
