Abstract

In most of the second or foreign language teaching contexts, the role of teachers is to translate the meanings of words and sentences in various texts to the students, and for that reason, language lessons must give attention to the roles played by sound, gesture and context in the process of genuine communication. Using clips from contemporary films and videos is an alternative approach for students to support their acquisition of the learning language in a real world context. This study integrates an innovative learning-assisted system, named the Dynamic Video Retrievals System (DVRS), which uses information retrieval techniques to examine video scripts for specific words, as well as subsequently utilize a ranking-based approach to analyze word collocations discovered. This computer-mediated interaction enables students in traditionally structured English classes to find engaging, real-life examples of language in use, giving them opportunities to strengthen their language skills in a culturally relevant way.
