DVDs with Closed Captioning/English Subtitles
High-intermediate to advanced ESL students may benefit from viewing films and lectures with closed captioning. Listening to spoken English and simultaneously reading captions can reinforce ESL students' comprehension and strengthen their language skills.
It is not necessary to be enrolled in a Telecourse to view these lessons. For a list of courses with instructional DVDs, see our DVD Instruction link.
Additionally, the Library's video clip collection is helpful: http://searchcenter.intelecomonline.net/SearchCenter.aspx
