Short Film Lesson Plans

ESL speaking activities have the simple aim of encouraging students to speak openly and freely, with minimal support, in order to achieve their communicative goals. Only in these situations can we really gauge a student’s progress and discover their strengths and weaknesses. On this page, you will find original lesson plans perfect for speaking practice which range from simpler, more controlled interactions to wide-ranging free-speaking activities.

To make things easier for you we selected some of our favourite short films and created full lessons based on each film. The lessons don’t require any printing; simply download the PDF and follow the instructions with your learner!
