Fun Subtitles

Having just read Ana Maria Menezes' excellent blog post where she highlights a new site called BombayTV, I decided to try it out immediately, as it looked like such a lot of fun. Here is the result below. Thank you very much, Ana Maria for inspiring me!!

I believe students would love creating new subtitles for these short scenes either in pairs or small groups. This would certainly be a different way of exploiting dialogues in class.

My EVO (Electronic Village Online) Images4Education course starts on Monday and I am raring to go!! I will be charting my progress as the course develops and hopefully I will recount my experiences here on my blog.

Thank you for dropping by. I had great fun and it took seconds to create. I read about it via the LifeFeast blog, which is always full of fab tips and tools.

@ popps

My pleasure. Am so glad you like the olive oil! Hope the Torrone was there as well.

The idea certainly has possibilities. I will have to test it out with some advanced students.

Thanks for the tip!
