1) I reviewed the materials for about 20 minutes. I did not use them in teaching-learning activities.2) I liked the quality of content. The plot and character summaries would work well as pre-viewing activities in an advanced ESL setting. I would probably highlight certain vocabulary/expressions in the section on the site that clarifies difficult concepts or expressions. I would not want to overwhelm the students with too much new vocabulary/expressions. Although the slang/expressions in the movie I reviewed (My Big Fat Greek Wedding)were great, as were the cultural similarities between Orthodox Greek families and large Latino families. As I plan on teaching Latino's, I think this movie would really interest them. They could relate to the Greek family dynamic as it parallels Latino families in many ways.4) Aside from some frustrations logging-in, I found the website pretty easy to navigate. Those not very computer savvy might not feel the same way.
