In this sheet I will focus on some of the ones geared specifically at Adult English Language Learners.
Here is a quick preview of the ones that I often share with my own students:
Jennifer ESL: http://www.youtube.com/user/JenniferESL
Viewed over 1 million times, Jennifer's 144 videos range from teaching grammar to common expressions, phrasal verbs, American slang. She offers help with pronunciation and even basic grammar and understanding prepositions.
Mister Duncan http://www.youtube.com/user/duncaninchina
This slightly nutty professor has made over 50 videos viewed 750,000 times and topics range from small talk topics, talking about cars or technology and general life issues like discussing health. Some are serious reports, some are just plain odd!
Soxo Exchange http://www.youtube.com/user/sozoexchange
An extraordinary channel consisting of people simply pronouncing common words and phrases slowly and carefully, showing learners how to do it themselves.
Learn English with Steve Ford http://www.youtube.com/user/PrivateEnglishPortal
Quirky Teaching English series of linked stories- soap opera style... however interjected with serious lessons and good clear explanations.
Business English Videos for ESL http://www.youtube.com/user/bizpod
Wide ranging videos perfect for Business English learners. They cover diverse topics including grammar, business letter writing, email tune-ups and more. The channel also includes specialized topics e.g IT and Computing, Legal and Financial vocabulary.
Do you know of any other good Youtube channels aimed at teaching English? Share the information with us if they are sites which you and your students really enjoy learning from.
In the spirit of not being judgmental... this, *blush* site is not at all for everyone but as some guys might have fun passing on the link to males they teach, I'll turn in the other direction while I give it to you - no... I'll say oh heck, it's tacky but good and she is teaching vocabulary... it's just her way of sharing knowledge!
Um... 278 million views.

Finally, if you teach kids or your students have them, this is a lovely site of very simple songs.
