Movie Talk

Movie Mini-Course for English Learners

Are you a real film lover?

Do you wanna talk about all the great movies you watch with your movie-loving friends?

But all you can say in English is I liked the film; it was interesting!

The truth is that it’s not easy to give your opinion about films in English.

This mini-course will give you basic movie vocabulary, so you can have interesting conversations about cinema in English.

It’s specifically for English learners who have no knowledge of movie vocabulary.


We're going to learn cinematic terms by watching and analyzing a short film.

  • How to answer the question: How was the movie?
  • How to give your opinion about movies.
  • Adjectives to describe films.
  • Useful expressions to talk about different aspects of the film (screenplay, dialogues, actors, plot, music, camera operations).


Bear in mind, if you’re already a member of the Shorts and Coffee Movie Club, the Movie Talk mini-course is already included in your course materials.
