Through films, students continue to work on refining writing skills, increasing vocabulary and perfecting listening-comprehension skills. As in a seminar, students will be asked to present on a variety of topics, lead discussion, debate, re-create dialogues, analyze scenes and interpret specific moments in the movies.
