Abstract: Teaching English to young and very young learners is a challenge: they remember fast, but they also orget fast, they have short attention span, they need action and emotion. Therefore materials for them have to be attractive and colourful. Video materials unite sound and picture, motion and emotion, they activate a few types of memory and of intelligence and contribute to their development, they also develop multiple literacies and the 21st century skills. The article suggests a number of selected materials that can be used in teaching English to young and very young learners that contribute to the holistic development of the child (memory, intelligence, literacies and skills). The criteria for selecting materials are presented and ideas for using them in the foreign language classroom. Online video materials can successfully be used both in the classroom and in distance or online teaching.
Keywords: teaching English as a foreign language, young learners, video materials, songs
