Request for Video

This is from Ben Lev:
Hi Ben, here’s a request for the PLC:
I’m presenting at an in-service on Friday. I want to do something practical, so I’m going to show them how to circle and park. If possible I’d like to do it in a language other than Spanish or French or English. Does anyone have a video in Mandarin or Arabic or any other language that would be useful to demonstrate circling and the importance of repetition?

  1. Hi Ben,
    That sounds wonderful. You might look at Carol Gaab’s Hebrew demonstration or Blaine Ray’s German one at the following links:

    You might also want to just ask a good friend who speaks another language like Japanese, for example, to sit with you and help you work thorough all of the phrases and words that you will need.
    God bless you on this endeavor.

  2. This is great. Maybe these videos would help others present in less-common languages. It is VERY important that the people we’re presenting to realize how much time and how many reps it takes to internalize new vocab. MIL GRACIAS

  3. Do you speak a language other than eng, fr or spanish? If you speak German, I can send you all my demo materials: story script, embedded readings, picturtalk and movietalk.

  4. I have some videos of Linda Li teaching Mandarin on Express Fluency’s Youtube page:
    The first one is awful footage, I mostly was interested in the audio (although you do catch a glimpse of Jen S at the end!). The second one has better video. (And Mike Coxon and Grant are in it.)
    Neither of these would work for what you are looking for, but might be of interest for blog members interested in non Spanish/French CI….

    1. Beautiful, Elissa. I asked Linda if there was any video of her online; she didn’t think there was, and that only the Fluency Fast videos were available (and to see those, it requires buying the course).
