Film English | ESOL, TESOL, TESL, ESL |


Film English is the brainchild of teacher, trainer and author Kieran Donaghy.  It is a site which promotes the innovative and creative use of moving images in language learning. All of the lesson plans revolve around the use of video and film to teach English. The site promotes cineliteracy, the ability to analyse moving images, and considers cineliteracy as a 21st century skill which our students need to learn.


In addition, the lessons promote critical thinking in the language classroom, and  encourage learners to reflect on values while learning a  language.


Film English has become a very popular resource bank and is visited by thousands of teachers every week. It has also received critical acclaim and won various awards, including winner of Best Individual Blog and Runner-up in The Best Use of Video in the 2011 Edublog Awards; the 2011  Site of the Year; and British Council Teaching English Featured Blog of the Month.
