We all remember when we took a break from boring old lessons and watched a movie in class. Bring movies into your classroom with some engaging activities and student will sit back , relax and purposefully watch a movie to complete the activities. Movies are perfect for teaching vocabulary and slangs . Each time they watch, students will pick up new expressions that they don’t usually hear, such as slang and idioms.
