Video based instructions of language culture are to develop language learners into active learners within a limited time frame. It is also used to simulate 'real life' environment to facilitate acquisition of linguistic and non-linguistic elements of communication. Not all videos are good videos, and when choosing videos the following must be considered: (i) the material must be current, accurate and useful. (ii) the video must have a high audio/visual correlation. After selection the video must be scrutinized in order to take the utmost advantage of the material.
Thus video based instruction is a good medium to teach and learn foreign language, but it is very important for the teacher to know the content of the videos, taking into consideration the aims and objectives of the material so that students can benefit the maximum in their learning.

The best way to learn a language is to use it regularly. In this report it is seen that learning is not done in isolation. Video chat session known as Palabea is used to chat on a specific topic. Teachers can create palabeas for either free or earn money. They can offer courses in specific areas like grammar, pronunciation or vocabulary and give online tutorial on specific topics.

Compared to traditional teaching, online teaching and learning is more captivating and the outcome is more fruitful for both teachers and students. However, learning through a video chat is beneficial only to those students who (i) can afford an internet service and (ii) know how to use the internet. Thus teaching and learning using a video chat is meant for a group of students only while others must continue with traditional learning.

Palabea is a video chat about a topic. these are created by teachers for free or for a source of revenue, to deliver their lessons on language. This is a great event in the way to make students acquire language as we all know that for someonw to master a language he/she should be fully exposed to the language and through video chats like palabea, the learner will be more exposed to the way the language is spoken about the pronounciations and about the grammar and everything that can be cleared off since it will be far interactive as compared to other means of learning.

The video is about teaching English speaking in Thailand. When teaching a foreign language the teacher must organize the lesson and students must feel relax when teaching is going on, which results in more participation. Before the lesson a warmer is important and an idea of a warmer is a group work where students communicated to each other. After the warming up teacher should go directly to the lesson- give instructions and make sure students have understood the instructions and are working accordingly. The focus should be on fluency and there should be practice and repetition of the target language.
However it is seen that although teachers use foreign language to give instructions, quite often they must use the mother tongue to clarify doubts and be explicit in their teaching.

The video is all about how English language is taught in a foreign country for instance Thailand. The video visits the different tips that teachers may use during their language class. these could be used as a resource video for every teacher who wants to conduct a language class and to get the maximum participation from the learners part. teachers could exploit this video as to the maximum as they could.

Digital storytelling is an innovative way to empower students to self learn. It is a way to engage students in research and integrate technology in their learning. Through Digital story telling students are able to communicate when they do not have the necessary language to communicate in writing. But traditional storytelling is also important as it helps to improve students’ ability to express themselves and is a powerful means of education which helps to put the learner at the center of the learning process.
Hence digital storytelling is a technologically advanced way to learn foreign languages. It is a way to prepare students to face this technology world without fear.

Digital story telling is a very innovative way to bring about motivation in our students. The teacher may at times lack skills to convey the appropriate message to the learner while telling the story using the traditional methods. But now with Digital storytelling which brings about the Text

And other digital media, make learning more fun and enjoyable. This contribute in making the learner understand the abstract part of the story which are at time read by boring persons who has not got the proper skills for the students to learn something through story telling. Digital story telling contributes in making the learner more proficient in language, since they'll have to report what they have understood to their friends. But their are also some limitations while using such a tool. One example could be that there may be no access to the computer lab or to the software.
