Hot Internet Teachers – A Teen Boy’s Dream

Marina Orlova -- The Internet's Hottest Teacher

This is ‘old news’ but since I’m trying to kick-off this blog, I decided to write about the subject to get things started.

Marina Orlova, as every one knows, is YouTube’s most popular user. I wasn’t aware of her until my 14 year old son, who used to loathe vocabulary lessons, stumbled upon her a few weeks ago.

At first, I was a bit hesitant of Orlova’s credentials and my son taking such an interest in her lessons. However, she holds philology degrees in both Russian and English, not to mention that she makes learning word origins fun and interesting, so my husband and I allow him to go to her site.   Check out her lesson below from YouTube:
