Play our free Video Booster of the Day: a 6-step learning experience based on the Video clip of “I Gotta Pay My Dues” from The Words.
Video Boosters are interactive learning units based on short clips from hit movies, TV series and music videos. Choose from hundreds of Video Boosters with new ones published daily.
Video Boosters are video-based interactive English language learning units that help you reinforce your vocabulary; oral and written comprehension; grammar and usage skills in just 15 minutes.
Each is based on a short (one to three-minute) authentic-language video drawn from a wide range of current sources, such as blockbuster movies; hit TV series; chart-topping music videos; reports from global television news channels; documentaries; how-to videos; and lectures by opinion leaders. There then follows a sequence of five interactive exercises dedicated to comprehension, vocabulary use, listening skills, and grammar usage.
Each video is preceded by a snapshot of the vocabulary which will be encountered (from six to eight items) and a summary of the video. Learners can then view the video – pausing, rewinding, and replaying as often as they like – before starting the comprehension part of the exercise sequence. At each stage of a Video Booster, the learner continues to have access to the video resources (the video player itself; the key vocabuary; and, in later stages, the video transcript) and benefits from immediate feedback on correct/incorrect answers; intermediate scores; and messages of encouragement by the English Attack! mascot, Booster.
At the end of the Video Booster, you receive a breakdown of your intermediate and total scores; a skills graph; and suggestions as to related Video Boosters. You can also comment on the video; and share it via a range of social networking tools.
