The aim of the seminar is to present pedagogical support for teaching speaking skills using English-language films. The seminar will look at the processes a teacher must go through in order to help the learners to imitate, replicate, and initiate speech based on selected films. The participants will
– learn to use tools to implement films in the classroom and adjust pre-set lesson plans;
– be able to design worksheets, assignments, and projects that will instigate speaking;
– acquire knowledge that will aid in assessing speaking skills after using films in class.
