The article reports on the appeal to use video materials as an instructional tool for language learning. It states that video is found to enhance student's affective attitudes to language learning aside from fostering language and cultural acquisition. It notes that video programme makes classroom learning experience more active and interesting because of its sensory impact and the element of authenticity. It cites that in spite of the appeal that video holds for students, video materials will not lend the students to producing learning outcomes without teacher intervention.
