Teaching & YouTube

I found that the blog post written by Sanna also applied to me, as I usually find myself watching videos online in my free time (usually interviews with my favourite actors or humorous videos) but I also use YouTube as a resource for assignments.

Most of these activities can also be tweaked to be more suited towards older aged students.
