General requirements

  • The core target audience is language educators, in any setting, who want to develop their professional expertise in film-rich approaches to teaching. The examples of practice will be drawn from the UK, though the short films we use come from all over the world. 
  • There is an inbuilt default in the work we’re drawing on towards French and Spanish language learning, though we will take care to generalise away from specific languages wherever possible. Prospective learners need nothing more than a curiosity about film, the world, and about how people learn languages.
