Abstract

Grammar is probably one of the most difficult and unpopular categories of English study. For most English learners, grammar is about as much fun as a difficult formula in mathematics. That is, learners have to "memorize" it and apply it when answering questions in a test. One solution is to use movies for teaching grammar. Movies are motivating educational material and a rich source of a "real conversation." By using a movie, learners can see, hear, and fully understand how to use a particular grammar point in a meaningful context. Their passive grammar knowledge will become active, reinforced and meaningful. However, movies are generally too difficult, especially for lower-level learners. Most learners seem to find it almost impossible to understand foreign language movies without subtitles. This paper will show a solution for the above problem and demonstrate effective ways of utilizing movie segments to make a variety of exercises including grammar ones.
