Classroom Tips:

1. Preview both the movie and its lesson. Lesson and movie are in the same sequence.

3. Estimate how you'll use available time for both watching and discussing the movie.
4. Remember: Most questions on the lesson are easy for a native speaker of English to answer, so the movie itself is the answer key.
