984 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 has put together this collection of 1,027 worksheets themed on movies, cartoons, and viral videos. But that’s not the only reason these 1,027 worksheets are handy. How do we know these worksheets work? Ready to find a worksheet for your class?
