Welcome to my page on using videos in the foreign language classroom.


Here you will find tips and materials for using short films for active viewing.  Short film extracts can be used to practice listening comprehension, to trigger speaking activities or to teach certain aspects of culture and lifestyle.

Some of the materials on this page have been designed by students in my course “Teaching Literature and Culture”. If you find any little mistakes or have ideas for improvement of these materials, please send us some feedback.
