  1. Hi
    I think this lesson will be useful in teaching other languages not only English.

    Thank you

    1. Hi Jaall,
      Thanks for commenting. Lots of teachers of other languages already use Film English in their calsses, so you’re absolutely right:-)
      All the best,
      Kieran

  3. THANK YOU EVERYONE WHO WORKS ON THESE LESSONS! Your team is amazing.

    1. Hi Victoria,
      Thanks for the kind words. There’s no team though,just me 🙂
      All the best,
      Kieran

  4. Firstly, thank you very much for your site. It’s a great teaching tool with some fantastic lessons.

    I tried this lesson today and sadly I have to agree with my students when they say that there are few emotions shown in the film.

    It’s definitely a good piece to use when trying to start conversations about emotions felt when listening to music, however steps 3,4 and 5 really had my students struggling. They are B2 level. Even as a native speaker, I could think of a few emotions, but not if looking at the film without sound alone.

    Thanks though, and I look forward to seeing more of your posts in the future 🙂

    1. I agree with you Kieran,and I find using these lesssons you can add to the structure depending on your students on the day. I have 2 groups with whom no 2 Film English lessons are the same. Teaching with a thesaurus can be exciting and stimulating. Thanks again for the work.

  5. Made a grey cold Monday less grey. Great topic. Thank you for doing the spade work. The students did the rest.

    1. Hi Shelly,
      Thanks for the kind words. I really happy the lesson brightened your day 🙂
      All the best,
      Kieran
