Support Film English by Buying Film in Action

Posted on October 2, 2016 by kierandonaghy


As many of you already my latest book Film in Action in the DELTA Teacher Development Series was published just over a year ago and is available to buy at book stores or on Amazon UK, Amazon Spain, Amazon Germany, Amazon Italy, Amazon Japan, or Amazon USA.

You can find out more about Film in Action by watching this video trailer.



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 and allow me to write more free lessons. Writing the lessons takes up a lot of my time (every lesson takes approximately 10 hours to write and there are over 160 lessons), and maintaining the site is very expensive. I don’t charge anything for the lessons and I don’t accept adverts, and I would very much like to continue doing so, but I rely on the royalties I receive from the book and generous donations to keep the site completely free and ad free.  If you can’t afford to buy the book yourself, you could ask your school to buy a copy for your staffroom.

Although over 3,000 teachers a day use the lessons on the site but only a tiny proportion donate, so I would ask teachers to consider donating or asking their school or institution to donate. I know of many schools where a large proportion of the teachers use the lessons on a regular basis, so it only seems fair to ask schools and institutions to donate.


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

Here are some sample materials from the book

I hope you enjoy the book. Thank you for your support.

  1. Hi,
    Bought the book and REALLY enjoy it.
    Thanks for the tips, lessons and making life a little easier and more interesting.

  2. This book is fabulous! So many ideas for all levels. So motivating! You can follow word for word clear instructions for a lesson or read it straight through (as I do with a cook book) then close the pages and let your imagination run… Enjoy!

  3. I have just bought your book through I look forward to using more of your ideas in the classroom this teaching season. I already use your site relatively regularly and it is, indeed, a welcome break from “the text book”. Thank you for your constant effort to keep the site free of assorted feculence.

  4. Dear Kieran,

    I have just purchased your book from Amazon UK website. I am from Greece and as you may probably know the current financial situation of my country is quite horrible. However, I do wish to support you. I used one of your lessons last summer (the one about Values) and it was appealing to my student and I personally liked all the attached worksheets for the teacher as well as the film itself. I do realise the amount of personal work that is put in this effort of yours and it is a pleasure to be able to help.
    Keep up the good work. All the best.
    Thank you.

    • Dear Bessie,
      Thanks very much for buying the book. I really appreciate your support especially given the financial situation in Greece. I hope you enjoy the book and use more Film English lessons.
      With best wishes,
