M. Senguttuvan Laxmi Dhar Dwivedi


Videos are an essential component in language labs and its usage has risen rapidly owing to the increasing stress on communicative practices. It is evident that the use of videos is a big advantage for language teachers in inspiring and facilitating the learners towards learning the target language. A large-scale survey by Canning-Wilson (2000) clearly indicates that the students like learning language through the use of videos. The learners are exposed to videos which are either streamed through programmed language software installed in computers or played separately. The videos situated in the learning software operate in a pattern that aims at certain skill development like following the native pronunciation pattern or teaching body language, etc. Such skills could also be achieved through the use of videos which focus on speeches by experts.
