This worksheet accompanies the movie "Gulliver's Travels"
This has 27 questions in chronological order, writing a summary, creative writing; What would you do if you found yourself on an island like Lilliput? and "Imagine you are somehow transported to another place because of the Bermuda Triangle". It is best to get the students to write notes throughout the movie to help work through the handout, but if time is limited can be used while watching instead.
This movie is about travel writer Lemuel Gulliver who takes an assignment in Bermuda, but ends up on the island of Liliput, where it's full of tiny citizens.
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
