Every week you should be watching one episode of a TV series that uses everyday language. I’ll show you how in class, with some of the scripts here. Once I finish, you can go ahead and use them all, or find your own. I formatted these as printer-friendly versions, but please, don’t read them before having trained in learning to listen, which means, at least until you’ve watched those episodes 4 times. With repetition, when you notice you understand something new, remember to jot it down so you can underline it later in the script.
- West Side Story and Grease
- Watch students performing a scene
