Nice Words

Teachers from all over the world have been kind enough to give very positive feedback on the innovative and creative use of moving images in Film English. Here are some of the comments.


Thanks for your generosity. You’ll never know how many lives you have touched. Your work is treasured by my students. Your work has really inspired my students. Me too.

Chris Bohlander


Thanks so much for these detailed lesson plans. I really like that your site uses film. There’s something about moving images on a screen that keeps the attention of students much better than I can on my own! Great resource for English teachers, thank you so much.

Jon Sumner


Thank you for such a brilliant website. It is the best website that I have found for teaching English – I just love the clear, coherent way that you organise it all, but mostly it’s the content of the lesson ideas that is great. Each one makes you think. Through your website I find that, primarily, I learn things whilst planning my lessons, as each lesson plan makes you want to explore other things. And indeed, learning English can be seen as not just learning a language but learning other things IN English at the same time.

You know how to connect with people and feelings through your own choices of film and how you focus on the opportunities that each clip can provide. In this way your work is a rich and meaningful source of inspiration both for myself and people I have had the fortune of working with. Thank you once again for so much positive energy, for caring and sharing things that I believe are important to many of us.

Fiona James


I discovered you website not that long ago. And actually I consider it to be the best ever! I wish to thank for your great work as it is an enormous help to me and probably thousands of other teachers. Each lesson is a fantastic support to my lessons. Thanks again. I’m the biggest fan of your work.

I really admire your work, not only for the excellent ready-made plans you put together for the teacher in a rush, but more importantly, for the modelling and inspiration of what an excellent class can be like.

Listening in to staffroom conversation at my teaching centre gives an indication of how much teachers make use of your lesson ideas. I also use them in teacher training sessions to show what the ingredients of a good lesson plan are.”

Ann Foreman


Your work is so consistently excellent – fun to use in the classroom and delightful for students of most any age.  We can all learn so much from your efforts, and those of us in the profession who know you and have the chance to work with you are all the better off for it.

Debbie Tebovich


I find your site to be so inspiring. Your approach to using film in the classroom always has a very artistic and philosophical aspect to it. I have experimented with a few of your lessons and this one seems like another winner. Thanks for sharing your creativity!

Zayra Vogensen


I think that your blog is extremely creative and the activities are thoroughly engaging.  The lessons are consistently great and I’m always impressed with every new post.  Your blog deserves to be recognised and hopefully it encourages and inspires other teachers to create similar activities.

Just a few words to congratulate you on this site! I’ve used your lesson plan on kindness yesterday and it was a very emotional moment with my students.  Really, really good. Thanks for sharing your creativity that enrich our lessons. I just wonder how you have the time?

Cristina Silva


Brilliant site. Absolutely brilliant. Really, really good idea for a website. It’s great to see lesson plans that aren’t just dry exercises or grammar-based and can really get through to students of all ages.

Steve Kerr


Rarely do I find a lesson that 1) I can use without changing anything (!) and 2) is actually meaningful and thought provoking. Thank you and I look forward to using more of your work.

Erin Treece


I’ve often used your beautiful, inspiring lesson plans in my classroom, often with mixed ability students, coming from different social and cultural backgrounds and the outcome is always the same: motivated, enthusiastic learners, anticipating the next viewing event. Thank you so much for your consistent, devoted work.

Niki Nistikaki


 I’ve been teaching English for more than 20 years and strongly believe that it’s impossible to teach any subject(I mean Language,History, even Maths) without teaching warm attitude towards other people – no matter how it happens.You give me (as a teacher) a great opportunity of using this film during my lessons.Thanks a lot!!! God bless you! You are really sharing not only educational but humane and positive-thinking way of teaching as well.

Tatiana Fedorova


Thank you so much for your site! For the films, you find for your lesson plans! It’s hard to find the words to describe how I feel watching them. They are not just educating stuff, but a kind of delicious award for students, that should be gained!

Elena Moilova


Absolutely brilliant… our life is full of moral dilemmas and sometimes we’re tempted to sell our souls to the devil. This reminds us how good it is to keep faithful to dignity and integrity.
Thanks so much Kieran.

Elsa Mancado


I really like your lessons and so do my students, We did the activity about bullying(new boy)and apart from being a bit shocking for them I got very interesting, revealing results when they wrote an essay about bullying.
