YouTube --- Youku


There are a lot of videos on the EAPFoundation.com YouTube channel (also available on Youku if YouTube is not available). There are two types: EAP Shorts, and regular videos.


EAP Shorts

Each video in the EAP Shorts series covers an element of academic English very briefly (2-4 minutes), with a snappy tune and text to go with the video rather than voice-over. These are a great way to introduce or review a topic; useful for teachers as well as students. New videos will be released every two weeks.
