How to Learn a Second Language

Posted on April 1, 2008. Filed under: Blogroll, Lessons Based on our Videos, The 2008 Videos | Tags: |

We have begun our 18th year of video creation for ESL and EFL students and teachers. Right after New Year’s, we filmed in South Beach, Miami. We concentrated on these questions:

– Do you speak a Second Language?
– How did you learn it?
– Have you any advice for people learning a Second Language?

The answers to these questions will be helpful to ESL students.

There are 2 versions of each video:

the first version is without subtitles and the second version is with precise subtitles or closed captions. Thes videos begin here: http://www.real-english.com/second_lang_a.asp

This is a picture of Joanne. It was the first time she interviewed for Real English. She did excellent work as a first-time interviewer.

In this picture she is interviewing Colonel Roberts. We met him between our “serious interviews”, and asked him different types of questions. It’s a fun interview at http://www.real-english.com/colonel-roberts.asp, based upon what he was doing when we met him: making people do push-ups on the sidewalk in Miami Beach!

All of our latest videos are for intermediate and upper intermediate levels, which is one reason I added the versions with closed captions, making them more accessible to a wider range of levels.

We’re working on new exercises and quizzes now. If you go to lesson 15 in the Classic Clips sections, you’ll see a new type of Real English lesson.
