If you need a break from going to class or reading a book, there's nothing better than learning a language by watching a movie or listening to music. Watching a film is a fantastic way to learn a language. Listening to music can massively improve your vocabulary and grammar because it puts the new words and sentences you’re learning into context. You can hear the language in real-time, usually in the form of casual, conversational speech, so you're far more likely to remember words if you learn them in a song. And besides, it’s fun!
Students will explore different cultures and languages through several media formats and keep a blog or journal to record their experience, learning, and enjoyment. They may find news articles, as well. As they learn more about a culture and language, students will eventually create a newscast, review, or short movie based on their reflections.
