It is easy to choose the most appropriate video for your needs. Therefore, the tables of contents may be refered fopr each of the four levels. In these tables lexical , functional, grammatical and cultural contents can be found by the students so that they can practice on each video.

See the table of contents for the video levels A1, A2 , levels B1 or B2 and select the most appropriate for their objectives, the curriculum is followed and the interests of their students. You can also decide the most appropriate didactic time sequence of the course where you will introduce the video.
The central part of the course consists of videos, which feature support materials in PDF format: transcripts, Tutorials and solutions. You can download these PDF files, copy and distribute them freely among the students. VideoEle is free,you just need to mention where the material was obtained.
The videos have an approximate a duration of 3 to 6 minutes. Each emphasizes a different lexical contents, communicative functions, grammar or cultural elements.
Have the students set at certain levels, because they contain many details that reflect everyday scenes and numerous cultural elements in the environment of a Spanish-speaking country.
In this document, students can read the exact words they said in the video.
As a working procedure, in general it is preferable that students first listen to the video, stopping, listening as often as you consider necessary, encourage them to strive to understand all they can. You can then facilitate the transcription to be read. If necessary, help them solving their doubts and make sure they understand the text.
