Movie Talks are one of my absolute favorite activities to give my students comprehensible input! A Movie Talk is definitely fun and engaging, but the students get a TON of practice! These options are great to include in February for a little Valentine’s themed fun!

What is a Movie Talk?
Movie Talk is a language learning technique developed by Dr. Ashley Hastings. Basically, you play a short, muted video clip while you describe it in comprehensible language for your students.
One of the best parts about a Movie Talk is that you can talk about pretty much anything in the clip. This makes it easy to fit a lot of objectives! If you’re not familiar with a Movie Talk, check out my post here for more info on how to get started!

As with anything, make sure you preview the video! You know your school situation and your students best. What is appropriate for one setting and one age group might not work so well for another. Hopefully at least one of these will work for your setting!
