This worksheet accompanies the movie "Hugo"
The movie is about Hugo an orphan boy living in the walls of a train station in 1930s Paris. He tends to the station clocks after his uncle disappears. The only thing that he has left from his father is a mechanical man that only works with a special key.
This has 40 questions in chronological order. It is best to get the students to write notes throughout the movie, but if time is limited can be used while watching instead.
As always, an answer sheet is included. This version also includes helpful hints you can give to the students if they are struggling.
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.
