    You’re a superstar, Kieran!
    I saw this on TV last night and thought what a great lesson it would make, but wasn’t sure what I’d do with it. You’ve taken all that fussing away for me. Bit much for my Elementary class, but I change to a higher level next week, so job done!
    Thanks very much!
    Simon

  4. You just keep doing it. I love your website, ideas and lesson plans. The visual element of all your lessons is perfect for my art, design, fashion and communication international students at a university language centre.
    On my recommendation we bought your book.

    1. Hi Steve,
      Thanks very much for your kind words and support. I hope you and your teachers find Film in Action useful. If you like it would you consider writing a review on Amazon 🙂 Here’s a link http://amzn.to/2btPb66

    Phenomenal! I used this for a very mixed ability class and they were enthralled. Lower levels were able identify the sounds of the sports and then list the sports they could remember after the first viewing. Thank you.

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