Film is a great media, all communication students know this. We can learn a lot through films. Great films tell a story, carry a moral and make the audiences think. The way the director shoots the film teaches us about angles and cinematography. Even the bad films teach us what not to do.
Film-English is an interesting website that uses film to teach language. Kieran Donaghy, who teaches at a University in Barcelona, started this website with a pre-set lesson, using short films as a key component, to teach English to his students.
But film students can also learn a thing or two from the website. It gives a unique way to use film and the website also has a film glossary. Not to mention some interesting short films embedded in the website.
So explore the website, and you may see film in a different light.
