In these three videos, the presenter will answer common teacher questions related to motivation and output. First, he will tackle the question of student motivation, revealing the most important factors required to motivate students, based on academic research insights from a significant study in Taiwan. Next, he will share more research-based tips on how to use video to motivate students and get them speaking. Finally, he will share how the ‘intensive input-output’ model works in the classroom, and argue that teachers should plan for more output opportunities for students in their lessons; this will show students the point of learning English, instill confidence in their ability to produce fluent English output, and help them to internalize language more effectively.

How can we help students to convert the language input they receive into language output?
