Films in the ELT Classroom
DozentIn: Dr. Katharina Delius
Zeiten: Mi. 08:00 - 10:00 (wöchentlich)
Beschreibung: Films offer a wide range of possibilities for the EFL classroom. They provide authentic and varied language as well as a visual context. Used in the language learning classroom they can increase students' motivation and help them to develop all four communicative skills. Dealing with films in class can also train students' media literacy which plays an increasingly important role in modern society.
This seminar aims at exploring the question of why and how teachers can use films in the language classroom. We will discuss the viewing and analysis processes of films and various teaching methods. Students will get the chance to create and evaluate their own teaching material based on a film of their choice.
Please note that this seminar will take place fortnightly in presence. In between, the students will work on specific learning tasks, the results of which will serve as a basis for the next attendance session.
