Use short film in foreign language teaching and learning
Learners of a new language face exciting challenges in developing their abilities to speak, listen, read and write and in learning about other cultures. Through short film, teachers can bring new worlds into the classroom and bring language learning alive.
Research has shown that short film has much to offer language teachers in helping learners develop their knowledge of language and cultural awareness. This online course will share ways of teaching languages through the medium of short film that will inspire and motivate both teacher and learner, and improve attainment significantly.
This course is designed for language educators, in any setting, who want to develop their professional expertise in film-rich approaches to teaching.
It will be particularly beneficial to those teaching Spanish or French, although the learning outcomes will benefit educators with expertise in any language.
