This worksheet accompanies the movie "E.T The Extraterrestrial"
This has two parts to it. The first part consists of 6 questions all on the subject of aliens. The students get 20 minutes to complete this part, then discuss together as a class. The idea is that the students become familiar with vocabulary related to aliens as well as listening to other opinions and beliefs.
The second part consists of 30 questions in chronological order to be answered after the movie. Students are required to make notes to help complete this part.
This movie is based on a group of aliens who visit earth with one of them being left behind and stranded on this planet. The alien is found by a 10 year old boy, Elliot. Soon the two begin to communicate, and start a different kind of friendship.
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
