  1. I love this idea and think it’s a great way of teaching students. Just one question – where did you take the films from? They don’t open in Mozilla Firefox. I can only watch the food landscapes.
    Would be really great if you could drop me a hint.XYours,

    1. Hi Claudia,
      Thanks a lot. I’ve just checked and I could watch the videos with Firefox. I imagine it was just a temporary problem with firefox, but if you still can’t see them, here’s a link to Vimeo:

    Dear Kieran,

    I recently came across your website having seen the rave reviews on the BBC’s Teaching English site. I am based in China and cannot access youtube, or Vimeo, or the majority of the videos/films – over here we mainly have access to YouKu or TuDou, I was wondering if you know of any other sites that will play the videos and I can give them a try.

    What you are doing is awesome, and I’m really looking forward to introducing my students to your lesson plans – particularly in my ‘experimental’ classes.

    Keep up the good work.

    James.

    1. Dear James,
      Your comments are very kind, I really appreciate them.

      I’m sorry, but I don’t know of any sites where you could see the films in China. However, if you could get somebody to download the films for you using software such as Clip Nabber,http://clipnabber.com/, they could send you the films or upload them to a cloud such as dropbox, http://dropbox., you could download them and then put them on a pendrive, and then show them to your students. That’s the only solution I can think of, Ihope it works and that your students can gt to see them. Let me know how it goes.

      All the best,

      Kieran
