What I wish to show in this paper is effects of the class recorded video. In particular, it fs focused on foreign language (English) education in elementary schools in Japan. We usually use videos as materials which were recorded outside the classroom. However, in this study, I recorded English classes in elementary schools and showed the recorded videos to students and homeroom teachers in the classroom. They learned not only English but also how to socialize by watching themselves. Students can learn something by themselves what teachers don ft teach. I select two classes (the third and the fifth grade) from two schools and analyze what they learned using data from questionnaires which were composed of multiple-choice style and free writing. Then I show some proposals for further research.
