The Good and the Moving


This week my pupils are sending me audio files about their favourite films. Here is what they like; the films are listed in alphabetical order:

Black Swan
Dear John
Desert Flower
The Expandable II
Forrest Gump (two pupils)
The Hangover
The Lord of the Rings
The Mask
Pearl Harbor
P.S. I Love You
Slumdog Millionaire
Star Wars: A New Hope
Skyfall (two pupils)
The Town
Twilight (part one)
Twilight (part two)
The Vow (two pupils)

I am sharing two assignments to give you an idea of what was expected of them. The first is good and cleverly done (don’t think all my pupils have such a mastery of the English language). The second one was recorded by a very quiet but keen black girl whose family comes from Senegal and reflects her interest in the issues African girls still have to face today.

Forrest Gump

Desert Flower

  1. They both sound like wonderful students! I especially enjoyed the Desert Flower one. She expresses herself well.

    You might get more people listening if one didn’t have to download the sounds. I looked, and there are several platforms online for sharing sound. I see soundcloud, chirbit and yourlisten.

    • I had no idea one had to download the files since I can listen to them on WordPress. Thank you for suggesting websites where sound can be shared!
      This particular girl is very reserved and I am glad her work is so good.
