Video resources for Learning English as an architecture professional

There is a growing body of research that suggests watching YouTube videos, video blogs (vlogs) and reading blog posts can support learners growing vocabulary. This is often attributed to a growing trend for learners to interact more with online media and social media in their free time.

Many people will turn to watch TV series however with growing numbers of YouTube channels and industry bodies linked to the Architecture industry are turning to YouTube to communicate with the world. It makes sense that architects and landscape architects learning English can turn to use YouTube to learn relevant vocabulary.

The benefit of YouTube is you hear how the words are spoken, helping you to improve a number of things including pronunciation and listening skills. At the same time, you can see the words or images related to them on screen, which is perfect if you prefer to consume visual content and remembers things better with pictures.

The best videos are also interesting, fun to watch and relevant. Learning business English doesn't need to be boring, it can be interesting as long as you stay curious. The best YouTube videos are usually short so it also allows you to learn new things in small chunks, making the information easier to remember.

Here is a list of some of my favourites to use with students.
