The ideas to use moving pictures for Language Learning are endless, of course.

A beginning of understanding starts with a single picture and talking about ideas, emotions and what comes into the viewer’s mind and exchanging this vice versa with a partner.

One of the most successful directors is Steven Spielberg.

Check out Spielberg on Wired here.

He was interviewed in New York recently, read here on SZ Magazin.
