This movie guide accompanies the movie "Chicken Run"
This has 30 questions in chronological order which require full sentence answers. This is a great movie to watch with young and older audiences. The last question is that all too well known conundrum "Which came first, the chicken or the egg?" which I'm sure will get some great responses from the students.
This movie is about an American circus cockerel who accidentally lands inside a chicken farm. The resident chickens use this as an opportunity to escape from the farm's evil owners .
How can movies help students learn English?
Learning from movies is motivating and enjoyable
- Sometimes students need a change in style, and movies are generally an integral
part of a student's life.
Movies provides authentic and varied language
- It's always a good idea to introduce students examples of English in real
situations. This includes accents different to your own.
Movies gives a visual context
- This gives the student the ability to interpret the language in full visual context.
To see such visual supports as facial expressions and gestures simultaneously.
Variety and flexibility
- Movies can also act as a springboard for follow-up tasks such as discussions,
debates on social issues, role plays, reconstructing a dialogue or summarising.
As always, an answer sheet is included
