The English Language Film Club
Putting film at the heart of language learning
The English Language Film Club is a hybrid language course for ESL and EFL learners. Using a blended learning approach, students complete comprehensive homework (weekly Film Guide) in advance of watching feature length films in class.
With access to over 100 Film Guides ( classic, modern, adventure, biographical, historical and more) and lesson plans, as well as articles, advice and workshops on using film in language learning, the English Language Film Club has everything you need to establish film as a regular feature in your learning centre.
How it Works
Our unique twelve week course has two components: Homestudy and Movie Night. Homestudy prepares students for watching feature length films, with weekly film guides available six days in advance. In addition to key dialogue, each film guide contains a list of major characters, a plot summary, gap fill exercise, idiom/phrasal verb exercise, background information and youtube links to interviews with directors and stars. Movie Night begins with paired discussion with students comparing various aspects of homework. We recommend that movies are screened in a totally darkened room and thirty minutes are set aside for paired discussion after viewing.
