Students love talking about their favorite and least favorite movies. Describing movie plots is never easy, but is a great way to work on improving fluency. And because movies often have different names in different languages, part of the challenge is trying to figure out which movie your classmates are describing.
Anyway, today I have a list of movie-themed conversation questions to get your students chatting. If you’d like to print out the list, there’s a link to a printable handout at the bottom of the page. Enjoy!
