My name is Alexandra Kapinya. I’m an English teacher and movie blogger. 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?
