I am starting a new series called “Learn to in 20 minutes”. In this series I am going to give teachers like you instruction for how to use different techniques in language instruction. This first installment is on Movie Talk. I have found that there are many teachers who want to learn this technique that they may have heard about from others. I hope you feel like I keep my word and truly teach Movie Talk in 20 minutes.
Please join the learning by entering a comment here on the Blog. Tell my readers how you use Movie Talk or tell us what you like about Movie Talk. Thank you!

Merci bien! This makes me want to learn more about CI. I think switching up thematic teaching and IPA’s with fun activities like this is key!
As you can tell, I am not a CI teacher either, but I agree wholeheartedly that mixing CI activities in to what we usually do works well. Thanks for the comment.
High interest. Can circle so much old vocab or intro new according to video choice
Thanks for the comment. I agree. I especially like that there is high interest in videos and stories. And, like you, I find that you can get in so much vocabulary, which can be targeted to what you want to teach.
Great stuff Sarah – Thank you! Clear, concise and ready for us to use!
Thanks! I hope that those who work with new teachers will share it so that young teachers can get a start.
Love! Thank you! I start telling the stories with just me talking/acting to get students to imagine a little on their own first what characters or setting might look like.
I wish I could see how you use video. I can imagine that you are pretty comfortable telling a story for the class and drawing them in.
Thank you for sharing this, Sarah! Definitely a helpful resource to get started with Movie Talk!
Thanks! I think that if teachers get started they will love it and then can make it their own to fit their style.
Merci ! I became familiar about MovieTalk a few months ago, but your work really gave me new ideas.
Wow, thank you. That is a nice compliment. I hope that it is a pretty quick process to get used to and easy to add in to what you are already doing.
This is marvelous! Merci infiniment! I’m following your blog now too 🙂 (plus added you to my reader, so I can be sure to never miss a post!). Do you have a twitter account as well?
Thank you. That is very kind. I am on Twitter @devofrancais
