Summary

The video-based exercises, designed at the Novice High to Intermediate High skill levels on the American Council on the Teaching of Foreign Languages language proficiency scale, are aimed at developing non-interactive listening comprehension. The tapes used contain authentic broadcast Russian. Nothing is adapted. The trick to using real Russian is not to adapt the script, but to adjust the task required of the student. Tasks are basically two types: preparatory and sensitizing. Several recommendations are made on how to plug the exercises into a curriculum: (1) students should do television exercises at home or in the language lab, not in class; (2) students should be given ungraded feedback in English; (3) students should provide feedback; (4) budget enough time; (5) make sure that students do the exercises properly; (6) students must live with the frustration of not understanding every word; (7) students should be encouraged to work together. An additional section to the student gives instructions on how to use video exercises and how they are designed to help with listening comprehension. (AB)
