TED Talks

I introduced TED Ed a few weeks ago, but realized TED Talks wasn’t on my A-Z list yet. So, an intro to TED with this video. It’s not a talk, but it may inspire you.

Most people are familiar with TED Talks these days, and one reason people in Japan are more familiar with the site is the NHK show that highlights a TED every week. The interactive transcripts on the TED site make it an extremely rich resource for language learners.

My intro to TED on ellensclass blog

I’m hoping that my students will start to increase the percentage of native speakers of Japanese who appear on TED Talks … speaking in English, of course! You can do it!
