Are you studying English?
Are you a movie lover, too?
Then you might have tried to learn the language with movies.
It was a bit frustrating, wasn’t it? It’s not easy to understand entire films in English. The actors speak quickly and use slang. You probably didn’t have a teacher next to you who helped you out when you didn’t catch something either.
So, you might have given up, because who has time to watch a two-hour movie nowadays just to practice the language?
It’s time for a change.
Start watching beautiful SHORT FILMS with a teacher who can guide you through the movie!
SIGN UP FOR
Shorts & Coffee
Short Movie Club For English Learners
An online course + beautiful short films + a community where you can talk about films over your coffee.
When you enroll, you’ll get immediate access to the school’s platform, where you can take a:
1.) Spoken English Course
One of the reasons you’re probably struggling to understand movies and native speakers is that there’s a huge gap between textbook and real-life English.
In the course’s seven modules, you’ll learn colloquial expressions, slang, and see how people use grammar in spoken English. We’ll also focus on the differences between American and British English.
Take a peek inside!
2.) Movie Course
You'll learn how to talk about films in English and pick up a lot of vocabulary that will make you feel like a real film critic. At the end of the course, you'll be able to give your opinion about all the great films you watch with your movie lover friends.
3.) A 3-month short movie club + an online café (chat room)
I’ll recommend a short film to watch on Vimeo every single month, and we’ll chat about it via a chat platform. This is an excellent opportunity for you to put everything you’ve learned into practice.
SHORTS & COFFEE MOVIE CLUB
It’s an informal place, like an online café where you can chat about films. You can also socialize with other English learners from all over the world, people who are as passionate about films as you are! Yay!
Why Short Films?
They’re no longer than 15 minutes, so it’s easier for you to find the time to watch them.
If you’re tired of Hollywood blockbusters with predictable stories, you’ll love the short movies I’ve chosen for you.
They’re artistic and creative comedies and dramas that I hope will make your day.
WHY YOU SHOULD JOIN THE FILM CLUB:
1.) To improve your spoken English. We don’t learn colloquial English at school. It’s no surprise that we are still having difficulty speaking English in a natural way.
2.) You truly love movies and want to watch independent filmmakers ’excellent works and chat about them.
3.) You'd like to have a listening full immersion.
4.) You want to be part of a community of film lovers and socialize with other international students.
5.) You’ve decided to carve out some time for your hobbies and interests! Yay! It’s the perfect time to do it!
No matter where you come from, amazing films and
stories connect all of us on a deep level.
My name is Alexandra Kapinya. I’m an English teacher and movie and language lover. I got my university degree in modern languages and did some film studies related to the classics of the Hollywood studio era, with a focus on Billy Wilder.
I created this course because I believe in the power of films. I think they don’t just improve our language skills, but their amazing and inspiring stories enrich our lives.
Apart from English, I’ve learned Spanish and Italian, basically by watching films. At that time there weren’t any materials available to study languages with films, so I created them. While I was watching movies, I took notes and then made my own film vocabulary and exercises.
I’ve always dreamed of a short movie club specifically for English learners. Now, thanks to the Internet, you can be part of it, no matter where you live. You can connect with other language learners and movie lovers from around the world. How amazing is that?
