ESL: HBeg to HInter: Annenberg Videos on Demand
Connect with English (by Annenberg) <> -- A video instructional series in English as a second language for college and high school classrooms and adult learners. It follows a 28 year old student from Boston who has a dream of being a singer.
You will need to register for this free site, and it does require a lot of computer memory/bandwidth for the videos. There are grammar lessons and you can purchase books to go along with the videos. Very clear and the actors speak clearly. There 25 half hour programs in Connect With English and each episode has two sections: the story and the discussion group to review and study the videos and learn grammar skills. These are copyrighted videos. It's an interesting way to study English for High Beginning to High Intermediate level students.
