ESL Lessons organized by movie genre at Movies Grow English

ESL Lessons by Movie Genre

On this page, Whole-movie ESL lessons are grouped by GENRE and CULTURAL FRAMEWORK. Some titles appear in more than one category e.g. Action & Comedy.

Selecting a movie poster below links to the Whole-Movie Portal for the selected movie's ESL lesson. At the portal, there is more information about both the movie and its ESL lesson. You will have the option to instantly download the 5-9 page ESL lesson for $1 U.S. A sample whole-movie lesson is here at Featured Whole-Movie Lesson.

Whole-movie ESL Lessons are also sorted by Level of Difficulty on the Home Page at Movies Grow English. It is my heart-felt proposition that "movies can be one of the best ways for students to expand their practical awareness of English." Thanks for your interest. --mike laib
