    Question Movies and ESL teaching

    One of my students today asked: "Madam, can I tell you something?"
    I said "Its okay, go on please."
    He answered: "I'm afraid it's not related to the lesson's topic."
    I said "It doesn't matter. What do you want to say?"
    He said: "Will you watch the film TWILIGHT on mbc MAX (an Arabic English-speaking Channel)tomorrow night.
    I said: "Yes I'll watch it. It's good that you reminded me of it."
    The other students said with excitement: "Yes Madam, It's a new and interesting film."
    I said: "That's very good. So when you sit to watch it remember that I'm also sitting to watch it with you."
    They were very delighted and answered in one voice; "Yes Madam! Yes! We'll watch it with you."
    The first student added: "I'm addicted to such movies which are broadcasted every Wednesday night."
    I said: "That's very good for all of you to improve your English."

    I was very impressed by my students' enthusiasm to watch such movies and wondered whether I can use them in such an ESL learning / teaching environment.
    Thus, I'll be very grateful and thankful if you can give me any tips on how I can use these movies. Moreover, could you suggest any movie title which will be suitable to be used within this frame?

    Thanks in advance

    May I ask how old are your students?

    Thanks for your interest.
