Abstract Language teaching effectiveness can be greatly enhanced with the inclusion and appropriate application of various new media technological aids: video and internet. These versatile teaching tools can provide an important visual and audio stimulus for students who encounter difficulties with language usage and practice, especially inside the classroom. Language instructors can also exercise a greater impact on their teaching methods. They may play one or several short video clips, which may subsequently prompt for further follow-up discussions. Here, the students will be exposed to new forms of vocabulary, pronunciations, and speech patterns. Apart from listening solely to their instructors, students will also have greater exposure to other varieties of spoken English as well.
