Languages on Screen - free downloadable films in French, German, Spanish and Italian

What is this?

​As well as providing valuable modern language teaching resources that introduce students to the spoken language, culture and mind-set of people in other countries, Languages on Screen is also about introducing young people to the language of the moving image and promoting the aims of 21st Century Literacy.

This means showing students that audio-visual narratives are complex, multi-layered texts that need to be analysed to be properly understood.

Who is this for?

​Modern languages teachers delivering in senior phase.

​How to use this learning and assessment resource to improve education
