ESL Video

Principal function(s): Quiz/exercise makers

ESL Video is a website that offers grammar and listening activities as well as teaching materials for students and teachers of English. It also allows users to create their own teaching materials such as quizzes that are based on YouTube videos. ESL Video allows teachers to track students' scores. All videos are categorised according to the levels, starting from beginning (A1) to advanced (C1). See an example with a video and a quiz here: https://www.eslvideo.com/quiz.php?id=37534 Evaluation: By using real-world videos such as news, educational and inspiring talks, music videos or short clips from movies and series, ESL Video helps students work on their listening skills. Through quizzes, learners can also check their understanding and work on their grammar skills. Teachers can access other materials shared by fellow teachers and create a class code for their videos so that they can see their students’ results. They can also create their own class page so that they can have all of their videos in one place. For more information see users’ guide: https://www.eslvideo.com/users_guide.php
