DVDs and teaching
I have talked about using DVDs to teach listening skills (see this one from the vaults) but of course, one problem that we face is how do we know our students will watch the film without just putting on Greek subtitles ? Well, one answer is DVD SHRINK which allows you to make copies of DVDs and strip away anything you consider unnnecessary; Greek subtitles for example.
Of course if you have your own copies of a film without subtitles then making copies means that you're not worried that your precious copy of say, Revenge of the Nerds 3 (a classic of the genre!) will come back scratched and therefore unplayable.
