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.

Christmas in Sweden -- Christmas Around the World -- whychristmas?com Around Christmas time in Sweden, one of the biggest celebrations is St. Lucia's Day (or St. Lucy's Day) on December 13th. The celebration comes from stories that were told by Monks who first brought Christianity to Sweden. St Lucia was a young Christian girl who was martyred, killed for her faith, in 304AD. December 13th was also the Winter Solstice, the shortest day of the year, in the old 'Julian' Calendar and a pagan festival of lights in Sweden was turned into St. St. The crown is made of Lingonberry branches which are evergreen and symbolise new life in winter. A national Lucia is also chosen. Small children sometimes like dressing up as Lucia (with the help of their parents!). A popular food eaten at St. St Lucia's Day first became widely celebrated in Sweden in the late 1700s. Christmas Eve is also very important in Sweden. This is often a 'julbord' which is a buffet, eaten at lunchtime. Wow, I think I like the sound of a Jolbord! In Swedish Happy/Merry Christmas is 'God Jul'.

Huvudperson En huvudperson eller protagonist är den centrala personen i en bok eller film, kring vilken verkets handling utspelar sig. Ordet protagonist kommer från grekiskans proto (tidig) och agonistes (tävlare, kämpe) och betecknade ursprungligen den första rollfigur som kom in på scenen. Ett verk kan ha flera huvudpersoner. Efter protagonisten fanns ursprungligen en deuteragonist och en tritagonist.

Den klassiska dramaturgiska modellen Den klassiska dramaturgiska modellen är en teoribildning - med ursprung ur det antika, grekiska dramat - som beskriver hur ett drama ska byggas upp. En absolut majoritet av all västerländsk teater och film följer mer eller mindre medvetet denna modell. Dramaturgi är konsten att berätta en handling så att den fängslar publiken. Den används ofta i film, teater, romaner, datorspel och serietidningar. Exempel: Hjälten dör, skurken gifter sig med hjältinnan, berättelsens förmodade klimax följs av dess egentliga klimax, avrundningen uteblir, klimax uteblir, någonting som har utlovats i modellens tidigare delar stämmer inte. De tre enheterna är en dramaturgisk term som går tillbaka till antikens Grekland.

656 FREE Movie Worksheets for Your ESL Classroom Let’s face it: Even the most enthusiastic ESL class sometimes goes through dull periods. No matter how much you switch up the activities and topics, there’s only so much English that your students can absorb at any one time. Still, that limit is sometimes a lot higher than your students believe it is - and the genuine exhaustion caused by a challenging topic, is very different from boredom that comes from too much repetition. When your students are just plain bored of board work, that’s when it’s time to break out one of your “emergency” activities - the ones you know will raise your class’s mood. You’ve probably got some go-to activities of your own - but it never hurts to add some new ones to your arsenal. That’s exactly why BusyTeacher.org has put together this collection of 1,099 worksheets themed on movies, cartoons, and viral videos. But that’s not the only reason these 1,099 worksheets are handy.

When is Thanksgiving? Karaktärer och biroller Karaktärerna utgör utgångspunkten och grundstommen för en dramatisk film. Finns det inga bra karaktärer i en film blir det heller ingen trovärdig berättelse. Den goda och den onda människan I en dramatisk berättelse finns det alltid något gott och ont. Den onde kallas ofta den drivande karaktären, för utan denne skulle världen befinna sig i ett konstant tillstånd hela filmen igenom, vilket naturligtvis skulle tråka ut publiken. Protagonisten = den goda människan Hjälten = hjälper protagonisten Antagonisten = den onda människan Protagonisten Protagonisten är den goda människan i berättelsen som publiken ska sympatisera med. Hjälten Hjältens uppgift, som även är en av filmens protagonister, är att hjälpa protagonisten att bekämpa antagonisten. Antagonisten Är alltså den onda i berättelsen och behöver inte nödvändigtvis vara en människa. Schabloner En schablon är en karaktärs utgångspunkt och är på det sätt vi först uppfattar en person. Öppna och slutna karaktärer Biroller Karaktärsteckning
