Film Guides

ESL Notes

Raymond Weschler is a teacher who creates amazing film guides for EFL teachers and students. The guides consist of a synopsis of the film, a list of the main characters, explanations of the most difficult vocabulary and colloquial language, cultural references and discussion questions. These are the best film guides I’ve seen on the Internet. Guides are in Word, PDF and HTML formats.
