Assignment: Just Chatting

This is part of a series suggesting different ways to use Moviestorm in schools or other educational environments. They also make useful exercises for film-makers wanting to develop and practice different film-making techniques. Many more lesson plans and ideas, with free downloadable resources, can be found on the Moviestorm Web site.

Assignment: Just Chatting
Create a chat show in a foreign language.


Suggested techniques

Pick everyday topics in the style of daytime TV - fashion, household advice, food.

Use a celebrity from the foreign country and interview them (politician, sports star, entertainer).

Have several people chat about current events, such as a recent film or book.

Don’t take it too seriously - this should be fun to watch!

For teachers: benefits to students

  • This helps students develop fluency with colloquial words and phrases.
  • This is a good opportunity to practise humour and small talk.


  • Ages 14+
