Films on video are now as readily available - and as cheap - as paperbacks, and the video cassette recorder allows the teacher to use films in the English classrooms in versatile ways. This text offers guidelines and ideas for exploiting video film in the language class. It explores questions ranging from the psychological to the practical, and considers the value of film as a vehicle of cultural mediation. Close reference is made throughout to examples taken from films since the 1970s, including "A Man for All Seasons", "Wish You Were Here" and "A Room With a View". "MEP Monographs" is a series of handbooks for teachers that presents practical ideas for the classroom in the context of a blend of theory and practice. Each title focuses on an area of teaching which is of interest, with the aim of provoking new ideas and encouraging experiment.
