Doctor Hector Ortiz. A living legend, a master of the sounds of English. And would you believe this man is from…Chile?


Would you believe this man is not… a native speaker of English?

Words are superfluous here, because I’ve already said it all when I said…Hector Ortiz.


No, I’m not exaggerating, I’m not being hyperbolic. In fact, I’m wondering if I should give Dr. Ortiz some sort of introduction. I mean, to the uninitiated, to someone who doesn’t know what a tremendous treasure, a golden nugget the size of a golf ball, no a baseball, no the size of a basketball, OK, what a great video this is, then maybe I might as well be saying, John Doe.

Who’s Hector Ortiz?

For the moment, let me say to those of you who know, that the video below is awesome, it’s terrific, and it’s required viewing… for all EFL teachers…

For those who are seeing Dr. Ortiz for the first time, here’s the deal: Trust me.

Have I let you down before? Trust me, this video is going to help you, in a number of ways, to be the best teacher you can be. That’s our never-ending quest.

That’s why I recommend this video. Watch it. Go ahead. Click.

You won’t regret investing your time on this/these video(s). Even if you already know it all, click. This is a must see…
