Teaching English Classes from Learn Hot English 

Film review: Se7en + students’ own reviews!

Level: Upper intermediate (B2) to Advanced (C1)  |  Audio: Yes

Film reviews are great to do when teaching English classes. But it’s important to set them up properly so students can really benefit from them.

The best thing, in our opinion, is to start off by showing students how to do a review. Then, letting them do their own review, copying the style of the reviewer if they want. It’s also important to provide them with some useful language to use in their review.

So, for this lesson, we’re going to show you how we do this. The lesson is taken from one of our very popular books, English Unlocked that you can get from our online shop. Ready? OK, let’s go!

Here’s a fun lesson for you to do in class with your students. This practical lesson will get them using lots of useful language and all the essential skills: speaking, listening, reading and writing.

Other levels

Although we’ve set this lesson at a certain level, you could easily use it with other students too. For example, for higher-level students, you could make it more difficult by offering less support through the Pre-listening activities, or by getting them to listen to it completely and then answer the comprehension questions. Or, for lower-level students, you could help them with any new words, do more pre-listening or reading activities, or stop the audio more frequently and check their understanding.

Listening

For students with listening difficulties, use our stop-start method. This involves playing small sections of the audio file for students to try to capture the meaning of.

Remember, as part of the Learn Hot English method, we recommend three rounds of listening / viewing:

  1. Listen once without stopping for a general understanding (listening for gist).
  2. Then, listen again to answer comprehension questions, this time pausing if/when necessary.
  3. Finally, listen again but this time read the script at the same time.

Speaking

Remind students that any discussion questions are simply a means to get them speaking. Students are free to invent information if necessary, or if they think the question is too personal. The questions are simply there to get students speaking. The actual information is secondary.
