Motivate your learners with an inspiring range of video lessons for listening, speaking and developing vocabulary

Authentic and Engaging
Learning a language is difficult enough without being bored to death too, so it's no surprise that ESL learners engage in lessons much better when the topics and themes are interesting. EnEvo video listening lessons are based on presentations from some of the most eminent people in their field, and a fascinating range of relevant topics that will hold your students attention and get your students talking.
Listening Exam Practice
All the listening exercises in the EnEvo video lessons are based on Cambridge exam formats. However, unlike those dull, rehearsed listening scripts used in text books, all the EnEvo listening material is authentic. That means authentic pitch, tone and intonation, and a range of different accents. Not only is this much better preparation for English exams, it is also much better preparation for real life experience.
Vocabulary Building
How often have you heard your students say that they want to improve their vocabulary? All EnEvo video lessons include vocabulary exercises that align with the listening and discussion tasks in the lesson. So your students not only improve their listening skills, but they also develop their range of vocabulary naturally and effectively.
It's Good to Talk
A key part of all EnEvo video lessons are the discussion and role play exercises. All too often ESL lessons focus on written grammar exercises when students really need to use their classroom time to talk. The fascinating range of topics featured in the EnEvo video lessons will inspire your students to share their thoughts and opinions, practicing a range of grammar structures and new vocabulary in the process.
