  1. Thank you Kieran. Good class, as always! I would have asked her so many questions!!!! Specially after seeing “Melancholia” which I found excellent although very tough. Have a nice day!

    1. Hi Mar,
      Great to hear from you! Thanks a lot for commenting and for the kind words. Yes, I’d love to ask het loads of questions as well 🙂
      All the best,
      Kieran

  2. Great job! Loved it! But where can I find the transcript, please?

    1. Lovely material! great thanks! Where can I find the transcripts, though?

      1. Hi Andrea,
        Thanks a lot for commenting and for the kind words. I’m sorry, but I haven’t got time to transcribe the films, creating the lesson plans is very time-consuming, and I don’t charge anything.
        All the best,
        Kieran

    2. Hi Sabina,
      Thanks a lot for commenting and for the kind words. I’m sorry, but, as I said to Andrea in a previous post, I haven’t got time to transcribe the films, creating the lesson plans is very time-consuming, and I don’t charge anything.
      All the best,
      Kieran

  3. Assuming a certain level, Sabina, could you learners produce the transcript (not 100% sure I’d get it all myself!)?

    Perhaps you could divide it up into 30 second sections…

    Love the lesson, as always, Kieran!

    1. Hi Tom,
      Yes, getting the students to transcribe the video is a great idea! The students do the work, not the teacher. The teacher can help if they’re struggling.
      Cheers,
      Kieran

    I really loved this lesson. My students enjoyed talking about celebreties and their own selfie habits. The film also created a lively debate in the classroom.

    1. Hi Lina,
      Thanks a lot for commenting. I’m really happy your students enjoyed the lesson.
      All the best,
      Kieran

  5. I noticed this video has several curse words. How do you deal with that in class?

    1. Hi Nancy,
      I think it depends on your teaching context. Where I teach in Spain it’s perectly OK to present this type of language as there isn’t anything which is too strong.
      Cheers,
      Kieran
