English File Beginner by Oxford University Press

OUP has recently published the beginner version of their English File video series. It's incredible in that they make a serious attempt to do spontaneous street interviews, just like Real English. You might call it Real English in slow motion.

I feel vaguely honored by this attempt to bring spontaneity to the classroom. It's the first time a Major EFL Publisher has done such a thing.

The other videos in this series are popular at my language school, but the higher levels of English File make obvious use of actors as opposed to ordinary people on the street.
