Abstract

This paper proposes incorporation of authentic and specifically edited video clips especially into foreign language classrooms. Given that authentic visual context have proven to provide a high level of input to students, resulting in improvements in students' output (Hanley, Herron, & Cole, 1995; Weyers, 1999), many instructors try to use video materials in their classrooms. However, instructors often find these authentic video materials too difficult to be used in classrooms since it is hard to control the vocabulary introduced in the authentic materials. In order to control the use of vocabulary, selected expressions can be taken from authentic video materials instead of using the entire lengthy video material.
