Showing a TV show (drama) or a movie to students with subtitles has both advantages and disadvantages. It offers rich cultural experiences beyond the textbooks, even though the experiences are indirect. On the other hand, one of the shortcomings in using subtitles is that students don’t pay attention to the target language, relying on subtitles to understand the story. The activities that the presenter will share keep students more attentive to the target language. The activities are composed of three parts. The warm-ups that briefly revisit the previous lessons, while-viewing, and post-viewing activities. While-viewing activities focus on language—transcription and two-way translations. During post-viewing activities, the class discuss the story and cultural aspects that they noticed.
