Son Choi Yong
The purpose of this study is to look into the application and effectiveness of a commercially available video course as a language-teaching aid for low level students in the foreign language classroom. For this goal, the current study reports on the results of learning English via a video course as an English listening practice subject. Following the English course via video instruction, a questionnaire was administered to 60 learners to ascertain the success of the English instruction and to find which aspects of learning English via video are most appreciated. The findings imply that most English learners find it interesting and satisfactory to learn English via a video course. This represents that learning English via a video course is efficient to promote language proficiency of low level students. Accordingly, it can be summarized that low level English learners have to be encouraged for the wider and steady use of a commercially available video course.
