One of my New Year’s resolutions was to start the Teatime Tidbits TV YouTube channel and to make a new video every week. This is the ONLY resolution I actually stuck with this year and I’m loving the journey.
If you’ve ever dabbled in making videos, you’ll appreciate that it can be a lot of work and a huge learning curve. I’m learning new titbits with each new video I make and, even though they may still seem very amateurish, I believe it is the CONTENT that really counts.
I certainly look at the more established YouTubers and wonder in awe how they do their magic. So when they say ”hit that ‘like’ button” I’m there, banging on the button.
The English language learning offering on YouTube is overwhelming but for the most part really focusing on grammar/vocabulary aspects. To set Teatime Tidbits TV apart from the rest, I look to provide different styles of content and, of course, I aim mainly at the German speaking market.
So far I’ve produced ‘Learning Hack videos’, ‘Speak like a native (mirroring the blog posts)’, ‘Understanding the news’, ‘Tuesday Teasers go online (quizzes)’and finally today ‘Vocab, Vocab & Vocab’ using vocabulary from recent client coaching sessions in Quizlet (with a link for you to grab this set). https://youtu.be/8MTcrzuTwRg . Following the advice of Gary Vaynerchuk, I document rather than create. I also have many more ideas in the pipeline.
I would like to invite you to join me on the YouTube journey, learn with me, give me feedback (in the comments below – also in German) and advice to make Teatime Tidbits TV a channel, which provides you with exactly what you would like to watch to help you grow your English in the future.
So please follow the link above, watch it, tell me if you like it and let us make Teatime Tidbits TV a real community channel – you get what you ask for, not watch I think you want !!! Oh, please share the links & SUBSCRIBE, pretty please.
