A good site to visit and to use in order to learn English by movies in th e English learning classroom, the only problrm I think could be possible is the cost that it has, despite it's just one dollar, there must be somebody unable to pay that amount of money.-

Technical Remarks:

Easy access to the site,there are good graphics and image quality and the links are related to the contents. Up to date films and quite good extracts of movies.-

As an English Language Arts teacher, I am often looking for ways to connect videos to literature. This site offers many resources for over 270 movies. The site is easily explored and has resources for all subjects and all grade levels. I plan to subscribe for new ideas regarding my Romeo and Juliet unit.

I used this site to develop lesson plans using movies in courses designed for students with disabilties. Each lesson and related activities was based on viewing 15 to 20 minute segments of movies and the following up with a series of questions, discussion, and related writing assignments. I found this a great way to engage students and to allow them to meet course objectives in courses titled, Self Esteem, Career and Job Planning, and Transition to Independent Living.
