Using clips from contemporary films and videos is an alternative approach for students of English-as-a-Foreign-Language that can support their acquisition of the language in a real world context. Compact, attractive and easy to use, our dynamic video retrieval system (DVRS) gives students quick access to resources that can facilitate their learning. In this study, we integrate an innovative learning-assisted system, named the dynamic video retrievals system, which allows students of English-as-a-Foreign-Language to use information retrieval techniques which examine video scripts for specific word collocations and subsequently utilize a ranking-based approach to analyze the collocations discovered. Such computer-mediated interaction enables students in traditionally structured English classes to find engaging, real life examples of grammar and vocabulary in use, giving them opportunities to strengthen their language skills in a culturally relevant way.
