Abstract This article describes several theoretical bases for using context-dependent authentic video in foreign language instruction. The advantages of using digital video clips organized by communicative functions and linguistic features would enable learners to view raw linguistic data within the context-rich script of the video material. Software templates designed to manipulate discrete portions of digital video offer considerable promise as the most efficient way to display these video clips to learners.
