What people are saying about Film English

If you want lesson plans to go with your YouTube clips, then Kieran Donaghy’s brilliant Film English is the best of a number of similar sites , partly because the choice of clips is always so inspired.

The site and materials look very professionally designed and the materials are very complete, so if you want to get started using video with your students, this is a good place to find examples of best practice.
