Teaching Film with Blinders On: The Importance of Knowing the Language.
Blakely, Richard
ADFL Bulletin, v16 n1 p42-47 Sep 1984
Suggests the use of foreign films as a teaching aid for foreign language study. However, a thorough knowledge of the film's oral language (or languages) and culture is essential as a first step toward a clear understanding of the film's visual aesthetic. A dependence on subtitles or dubbing is discouraged, due to frequent errors and misunderstandings. (SL)
