Love Actually: activities, ideas, vocabulary I use a lot of films in my teaching: not just occasional Youtube clips but full-length authentic feature films, and I’ve been wanting for a while to start a new section on this blog where I would upload my film-based materials. I thought December would be a suitable time to share materials for many people’s favourite Christmas film Love Actually.Warning: some scenes are suitable for adults only Activities actually The activities are divided into three parts.

You can read more about this biased view of written language over spoken language in the online book “The Written Language Bias” by Peter Linell.

Elementary Web Sites for English Language Learners There are not many websites designed especially for elementary-age English language learners.
