  4. Great lesson for adv students. I did a follow up exercise where they had to write an essay for the DNA kit and it was perfect for high int adv students.

  5. Dear Kieran,

    This film should be required watching in our post-Brexit world. Thank you for drawing attention to it. I hope I can use it in class when I’m feeling less emotional!

    1. Dear Joanna,
      Yes, it is sadly topical in our post-Brexit world. I hope you use it in the future 🙂
      All the best,

  7. Hi Jaoa,
    I see from your profile that you offer online English lessons. I imagine you give easier lessons for lower level students and more difficult lessons for higher level students. Well, that is obviously the case at Film English too. The levels are clearly stated at the beginning of each lesson. In fact, this lesson is not particularly difficult as it’s suited for B1 to B2 students.
