TED Talks in the EFL Classroom, Part II

A couple of weeks ago I wrote about the success I’ve had using TED Talks with my Chilean students. Here, I’m providing some resources for other EFL or ESL teachers to use — links to some of the Talks I’ve found mose useful, along with the gap-fill activities I’ve made out of the transcripts.

I hope others will find them useful as well.
