Chiba JALT:

Learning from Movies & TV Programs: Do's & Don'ts

Date: Sunday, April 20th, 2003 Time: 2:00 PM - 4:30 PM

Speaker: Lyudmila "Linda" Fudzikata

An English-speaking environment can be created in Japan without going overseas, through extensive recording, listening, and watching of American and British movies and TV programs -- . It's the best way of learning English for non-native speakers because it's relatively cheap and available for everybody -- both learners and teachers -- and helps to perfect pronunciation, listening, reading and nonverbal communication skills. The presenter will give selection criteria and demonstrate some of the most suitable video recordings. The criteria for using movies and TV programs are critical. These criteria and teaching methods will be presented with opportunities for audience participation. With these methods the presenter, who graduated from the University of Cinematography in Moscow, has increased her own English level over the years. She recommends her students to do the same.
