Abstract: To realize the pedagogic advantages a movie has to offer, and to justify and optimize one’s time and effort in movie-assisted language learning, it is necessary to select movies best fitted for language acquisition and appropriate for language learners. This book introduces a collection of movies suitable for learning contemporary American English and appropriate for ESL learners; and provides an overview of the systematic approach in selecting these movies. Part 1 explains the set of ESL specific criteria and considerations in selecting these movies; and outlines the resources in gathering the initial list of contemporary American-English-language movies. Part 2 reviews these movies from the perspective of ESL learning and teaching, and provides the information relevant to deciding the fitness of a movie for ESL objectives, such as linguistic characteristics, ESL proficiency level, content maturity level, etc. This book is for intermediate to advanced ESL learners and their parents (in the case of young ESL learners), ESL teachers and academics in related fields.
