Hello Exam Seekers,
How are you today? As I’ve mentioned in a previous blog post, my life’s been in a rush. Many things happening and so little time to manage these things.
As promised, I bring to you guys the second part of my updates. If you haven’t read the first part yet – Updates 1/2021 – make sure you do! In my last post bringing you up to date, I mentioned how I’ve been reorganizing the blog as to the menu area and what you could find in each tab, and in relation to the content time and schedule.
I also mentioned that I had been full with content since April, but now in June/July I had slowed down due to another project. Well, here and now I am finally officiating my second project:
Exam Seekers is finally on Youtube!
As many of you who have been following me since the beginning know, the goal of this blog is to enable information on exams and certifications for teachers and interested parties in international recognition. So many of you follow this blog because you want information on exams and how to perform well on them. Also, there are other people who look for information on events and workshops that come by, and methodological content both focused on how to help students learn better.
The idea, in the beginning, was to create this content for Youtube. However, due to the fact that I am only a teacher and I have many tasks and therefore I lacked time, Youtube was only a distant dream while I focused on the content for WordPress.
With the COVID-19 pandemic, I had to stay home, which impeded me to move forward with my life plans – as to move to my own place, get closer to my job, etc. So I took the unique opportunity and finally started drafting my Youtube Channel.
Now, after having recorded and edited a couple of videos, I am confident that this is what I have been looking for all along. To provide you guys with the reading content here, the listening content in the podcast at Anchor, and finally the visual content on Youtube.
My first two videos were short, however, they were still hard to edit at first and they took a long time until I got the grips of the editing software. My third video, on the other hand, took a long time as well, because I was editing in a different style, and it was much longer.
Also, my computer does not seem the get along with the editing program and sometimes I lose all the editing I have already done. So, it’s being a battle, but I think it is worthwhile.
Here are the samples of the first two videos I uploaded to youtube:
TOEFL x IELTS – Which is better?
What is the TKT – Teaching Knowledge Test
Now, I am looking for improving the quality of audio by buying a microphone and the quality of the light. If any of you want to contribute with donations I’ll gladly accept! (link for donations below).
I still have many projects in mind, but I have to take one step at a time. If you all could go to my Youtube Channel and support me by following the channel, I’ll be forever thankful.
For now, that’s it for today.
Make sure you check out the content there. I’m trying to post there every Tuesday and Friday. Since today is Friday, this is a preview of the video today:
PREPARING A LESSON PLAN
Content of the video was based on my previous post about the CELTA Lesson Plan:
