not in our stars, but in ourselves
I am asking YOU, dear readers, to help me. It’s not a big deal, but it is something for which I would like your input. My new job is at an ESL school, and every Monday, we play a movie after classes are done. The DVD collection at the school is very small, and there’s talk of expanding it. You can imagine that my eyes did something like this.
Now, I have my little list that I’m compiling: movies that I think provide not only a good chance for the kids (I call them kids, but they are mostly grown-ups) to practice their listening and reading (we play all the movies with English subtitles), but also more of a taste of American culture. As you can guess, my tastes run to the old-timey, which not everyone is going to care about.
And so, dear readers, I ask you for your ideas. What movies do you think would be good both as practice and as a fun way to spend an afternoon? You don’t even have to think in edifying terms – just movies that you think would appeal to a wide variety of ages and cultural backgrounds. All help is greatly appreciated, especially because I still have to continue my apartment search (ugh).
