Abstract

Videos serve as a framework for structuring context, comfort, and critical thinking (the three Cs) in the EFL classroom. By using videos to facilitate the three Cs, EFL teachers can bridge the gap between theory and practice in many programs and increase classroom discourse. When EFL teachers and students analyze the discourse presented in popular videos and take part in various pre- and post-viewing activities, effective EFL instruction can occur. This paper defines and sets criteria for context, comfort, and critical thinking as well as giving examples of various video clips from popular movies, which are used with the three Cs to teach EFL.
