Help Keep Film English Free By Buying My Book Film in Action

Posted on May 17, 2015 by kierandonaghy


I’m delighted to announce that my new book Film in Action has been published and is now available to buy at book stores or on Amazon UK or Amazon USA. It’s a great honour to join all the wonderful authors in the DELTA Teacher Development Series and I hope that Film in Action will fit seamlessly into the series and enjoy the prestige that the other books enjoy worldwide.

I would ask all teachers who use Film English to consider buying the book as the royalties which I will receive from sales will help to keep the website completely free. Writing the lessons takes up a lot of my time (every lesson takes approximately 10 hours to write and there are over 130 lessons), and maintaining the site is very expensive. If you can’t afford to buy the book yourself, you could ask your school to buy a copy for your staffroom.

I would also ask teachers who buy the book and find it useful to write a review of it on Amazon.

You can find out more about Film in Action by watching this trailer for the book.



Here are some sample materials from the book

I hope you enjoy the book and find it useful.

  1. I’d actually love to buy it — is it available anywhere in the United States?

  2. None of the stores on Amazon will send this book to my address in Sweden. 🙁

  3. Happy to buy the book Kieran and hope you sell enough to keep this site free. It’s a great service to teachers around the world!

  4. Kieran, this is the least we could do for all these great lessons you provide. One thing though – is there a preview available somewhere, as there isn’t on the UK site? And will there be a Kindle version? (So, 2 things then!)

    • Hi Abena,

      In the article are three PDF documents which contain sample material from the book. I hope this helps.

      All the best,


  5. the book, like the site, is fantastic…i downloaded it to my kindle and can recommend it to everyone else…thanks

  6. Hi Kieran,

    Congratulations for your new book and for this wonderful site! I’ve meant to tell you ever since you changed the look of it…
    I’ve used some of your lessons whenever I’ve had the chance, and they were successful in every aspect.
    I’ll definitely buy the book to help this website go on, and you work on it!

    Best wishes,


    • Hi Montse,

      Great to hear from you! I hope you’re doing very well. Thanks for the kind words about the website and for the support.

      Al the best,


  7. Dear Kieran,

    thank you so much for the great book. Extremely inspiring! I am going to promote it in school (Stockholm) this autumn hoping that it will help you keep the website.

    Kind regards,
