English Insight by Don Sorsa

Posted on Friday, August 01, 2008

English Insight is a free English course that can be downloaded and works entirely offline from your computer. The brainchild of Don Sorsa, the course consists of 12 video-based lessons designed to help intermediate and advanced ESL students build their listening, critical thinking, and discussion skills through video clips that discuss political and socio-cultural issues.


• Simple installation: users need only download ready-made HTML and video files, which total about 140 MB, and unzip them into the same folder for the program to work

• Neat interface: each of the 12 video clips can be accessed with just a click of the mouse

• Various types of supporting materials (preview questions, comprehension questions, vocabulary lists, project suggestions)

• Space for students to take notes while they are listening

• Teaching guide for teachers who would like to fit the materials into their own courses
