Abstract

This contribution shows how film clips and film language can be used as multimodal resources in the foreign language classroom, especially for the teaching of pragmatic features of conversational interaction. After reviewing the merits of using audiovisual material in language teaching and defending the authenticity of film language in a pedagogical context, the contribution proposes an example of multimodal transcription and analysis of some clips from the Berkeley Language Center’s Library of Foreign Language Film Clips (LFLFC). The chapter concludes by reflecting on how to exploit these resources in the language classroom.
