Abstract: English language teaching has become the focal point all over the world after globalization. Literature has been taught as backup for learning the language in many countries where English is spoken as the second language. Various methods are adopted to make English language teaching more effective. Among all methods of teaching, blended learning is found to be more rewarding and provides better learning environment. In this way, online support in imparting English language especially comprehensive vocabulary and pronunciation has become the need of the hour. YouTube is one of the most influential online social media. It has become very handy for the students with its multiple effects by its colourful videos, pictures, graphics, subtitles with virtual streaming and live programmes with instant comments and views. Videos of lectures by eminent professors, trainers, and linguists can be easily watched and downloaded. Students themselves can create their own videos and upload and get feedback from the professors and peer group. It can be done as individual as well as group learning. This paper foregrounds that the English language teaching can be done effectively with the help of YouTube video clips in the class room. The analytical perspectives explore the impact of blended teaching method for second language acquisition.
