In this part of the course Study English through Movies 1 "Series" Stuff students will have an opportunity to meet several interesting characters from contemporary TV series (Numbers, Heroes, Seinfeld).
The course is designed for intermediate/upper-intermediate students of General English and aims at improving their listening skills. The tasks assigned involve identifying stressed and contracted words in the stream of speech and writing 80-120 word responses to the question related to the video fragment. The course can be used as part of the main General English course, or as an optional one.
There are four topics highlighted in the assignments: Living in space, Trust in Relationships, How to Handle Conflicts, Childhood Stories. The first one seems to be unique and thought-provoking; the way the other three have been shown in the series can shed new light on the well-trodden topics of relationships and conflicts.
