Introducing the Library of Foreign Language Film Clips: Modeling Language and Culture in the Foreign Language Classroom

by Mark Kaiser, Associate Director, Berkeley Language Center, University of California, Berkeley

This workshop will begin with a roll out of the LFLFC website and a demonstration of its functionality, using examples from Russian, Japanese, French, and Spanish. We will engage in an open discussion on the many ways that film clips might be used, including as a model of language use or as a representation of cultural artifacts and values. Finally, we will demonstrate how video clips might be incorporated into a variety of tasks to be used in the classroom and/or as homework.
