Bring Your Own Popcorn!

I recently learned of two great websites for using movie segments to teach English as a Second or Foreign Language. Claudio Azevedo gave a presentation through the Becoming a Webhead (BaW) course of the Electronic Village Online. Claudio is a movie buff and EFL teacher and teacher trainer at the Casa Tomas Jefferson Center in Brazil. He has created Movie Segments to Assess Grammar and Movie Segments for Warm-ups and Follow-ups which offer not only movie segments, but lesson plans and downloadable worksheets.  What a treasure of a website!
