Most of our learners enjoy watching movies.
Here are some ways to make use of their interest and knowledge to create some unusual activities.
- Ask your learners if they can think of any spoken sentences that typically occur again and again in films – things such as “OK everybody. Put your hands up”.
- Give them some thinking time to discuss possible answers in pairs then write all their sentences on the board until you have a good number, taking the chance to correct mistakes and practise some exaggerated intonation.
- Now make groups with four or five students in them. Each group must now select some lines from the board and put them in an appropriate order to create a complete mini film scene. They cannot add extra words!
- Each group should write down their dialogue, rehearse it and later perform their scene in front of the class.
I hope this works
