  1. I love your lessons and have been using them for years. Thank you! Is your text book available in the U.S.? I have only seen it on Amazon UK.

    1. Hi Gina,
      Thanks a lot for commenting and for the kind words; I’m really happy you like the lessons so much. Here’s a link to where you can buy the book in the U.S.
      http://www.amazon.com/Film-Action-Teaching-Language-Development/dp/1909783072/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1452542205&sr=8-1&keywords=film+in+action
      I hope you enjoy it 🙂
      All the best,
      Kieran

  2. I don´t agree with this material. Although the scenes are astonishing, at the end of each video there´s an add ( a phone, Johnnie Walker, etc), which I consider utterly unnecessary while teaching.

    1. Dear Nora,
      With regard to your comment “at the end of each video there´s an add (sic)”, I suggest you explore the site more carefully. There are approximately 150 lesson plans, about 10 of which are designed around short films which are adverts, so the vast majority are not ads. In any case, I don’t see anything intrinsically wrong with using ads in the language classroom. The site is completely free, and you are free to use or not use the lessons as you see fit.

    2. Nora, what aspect of the ads do you find disturbing? I should think that the value of the lesson plan hugely outbalances the slight inconvenience caused by those ads, ads that we and our students have grown to be able to ignore. Am I right or yes? 🙂
