A proposal to examine the principles of video use in ELT with a view to making concrete suggestions of its use in adult ELT classes, in particular in the distance learning satellites in Senegal
This work is arranged in six chapters. The first chapter deals with the English teaching situation in Senegal and focuses on a Distant Learning Centre where adults attend evening classes in English for work purposes. An attempt is made within the chapter to identify and analyse the problems both learners and teachers encounter in the teaching/learning process. The second chapter is concerned with the literature review related to video use in the classroom with a view to finding solutions to these problems. In the third chapter, a proposal which consists in integrating video in the language programme of the learners has been made, as a result of the literature review. The fourth chapter contains two video plans showing how video could be fitted into this programme. The fifth chapter describes how the project could be implemented through the involvement of the participants concerned. Finally, an evaluation is undertaken in the sixth chapter as to the efficiency of the colleagues' use of video and the learners reaction to it.
