moving X-mas film to get your students talking


moving X-mas film to get your students talking
Remember last year �s ad with a grandpa who was learning English to talk to his granddaughter in London? Well, the Polish auction service (something similar to Ebay) has made another one for this year entitled "A talisman - share what you have for Christmas". It �s short (4 min.) and bound to get your students talking. I �d say, quite moving, too. With subtitles, but generally little speech so good even for quite elementary students.

Interesting alternative instead of cramming new words. I believe kids learn more when they are involved into practical activities like discussions, watching movies, participating in some plays.

Thank you for sharing this! When the old man rolled up, it made my hair stand on end! Wonderful Christmas and anti-bullying stuff and I will share with my colleagues. The old grandpa one is mega, really wonderful, but shame I couldn �t use it last year because of the �f � word.  
Edit: Just watched the first one again; it�s so touching and lovely on so many levels... 
Thanks again joannajs for sharing!

Maybe someone could edit out the scene with the f-word?
Does anyone know of a safe, virus-free web site to download youtube videos as mp4?

Red camaro, d �you mean download videos as audio only? If what you want is to download as video files, do you know the "doublé S" trick?
