What Do Advanced Students Expect?

Advanced students have passed the initial rush of success — from beginner, where they could barely make a full sentence, to proficient students, who can hold a meaningful conversation. Eventually, the students will begin to feel that their progress has slowed and might feel a little stuck and bored.

What do advanced students expect? What methods can we use to motivate and challenge them?

” a quick view on how is Thailand like” – maybe tutors and training videos should include correct grammatical structure!

Hi Barbara, thank you! I use Manycam (Add a new layer>media files) and OBS to record the class:)

I love this! How hard is it to get to grips with Manycam? I am so untechnical but I love your ideas

Hi there Joanne, thank you for your feedback! I think it´s not very hard and it´s very useful, the effects are handy and quick to use in junior classes and the videos can be a way to engage teens or even to show those nursery rhymes we sometimes get. Some teachers also use Chroma Key for background effects, I prefer just playing around with the effects though.

Do you use ManyCam for teaching?
If not, How did you play the video throughout the platform?

Thanks Sara 😍I do use the ManyCam when teaching. Regarding the videos, first I download them , then create a New Layer and select the Media Files on my computer to be played on this layer. Hope it helps!

Great video Silvia! I use Manycam too – can I ask you what you use to download the videos first because sometimes Manycam doesn’t let you download the videos?
