Course Description

The "I love English TV" strategy is a revolution in adult language education. You will watch real life TV scenes at natural speed without feeling lost. Video lessons will stimulate your visual memory and provide context for common expressions. Quizzes provide instant motivation and feedback wherever you are. This is finally a practical course for working adults, but you must follow the directions carefully.

This course takes you through short study cycles that can be completed anywhere: at home, on a bus, in a park. Cycles take 15-20 minutes to complete. Each cycle consists of a short videoclip: 2-8 minutes, a quiz and a series of phrases related to the videoclip. There are currently 10 cycles and they can be completed in 10 days or less.

A good student will watch the video, repeating the important section as many times as necessary, take the quiz and practice translating the phrases into his/her language. For the best results, meet with a friend once a week and practice translating the most interesting phrases from your language back into English. Studying with a friend will provide motivation and improve confidence and fluency even if your friend doesn't speak English very well - just be sure you both watch the video clips.

So again, to get the most out of the course:

  • Watch a video clip.
  • Take a quiz.
  • Translate expressions into your language.
  • Practice translating back into English with a friend or teacher.
  • Watch another clip...

What are the requirements?

  • Time - 20 minutes per cycle: watch the video, take the quiz, practice the phrases in the pdf
  • Printer - pdf supplements can be seen online but printing is better
  • Headphones - good audio is important and a good set of headphones can make listening easier while travelling
  • A friend - watching the videos helps with comprehension but you really need someone to listen when you practice the phrases you've learned. Study with a friend once a week.

What am I going to get from this course?

  • Train your ear
  • Improve your pronunciation
  • Expand your vocabulary
  • Remember practical phrases

What is the target audience?

  • Adult English students

Instructor Biography

I have several years experience as an English teacher. My students are mostly adult learners who can read English but don't understand spoken English very well. I am fascinated by languages and can speak Italian and English fluently. Speaking two languages helps me predict what phrases will be difficult for students. I designed the "I love English TV" course with two primary objectives:

1.) to help students understand spoken English

2.) to engage students in speaking/rehearsing

and two secondary objectives:

1.) to highlight pronunciation

2.) to reinforce basic grammar

When I'm not teaching or translating I enjoy studying. My favorite topics are religion, history, medicine, science and linguistics.
