MOVIE NIGHT

Hello Everyone. We would like to share our impressions of the Friday event and thank all participants for attending. We watched the movie State of Play.

For some of our students it was the first time they had an occasion to watch a film in English with English subtitles. Everyone understood what it was about and we also had a discussion on some vocabulary. Please, find enclosed the lexical items we found useful. We are open if you want to send translations/explanations of all 54 words and phrases listed below. We will check them for you☺ We were delighted to see how engaged everyone was in the discussion after the film finished. Well done! We hope to see even more of you next time.
