I used an educational sitcom called [email protected] It worked quite well

I used New Headway Beginner Video. It goes with the activity book. My ss liked it. We also watched [email protected], but it didn īt go as well as the first.

Headway Video, Beginner is the first level of an innovative English language teaching video series. It combines light-hearted drama within six units to provide rich and varied learning material.

I agree with EXTRA ENGLISH, but you should know that it gets more and more difficult by the episode. There are 30 of them, and only about 10 first are suitable for beginners/elem. The rest are better for elem/pre-intermediate students. But it depends on your approach - you could always give a helping printable.
And there īs a nother series which is absolutely hilarious, but suitable more for adults than teenagers - "MIND YOUR LANGUAGE". The level is higher in it, I īd recommend it to pre-int/interm students. Maybe you īll find it useful in the future :)
