Professor Frank
Groundhog Day. The ESL lesson and quiz focuses on English vocabulary and common phrases, but can be used to learn to speak English, listening comprehension, pronunciation etc. You just watch the movie trailer, then read and listen at the same time, and study the vocabulary and script. When you feel that are ready, take the quiz. I hope you enjoy this trailer about a man who learns a valuable lesson. He lives the same day over and over again - until he lives it in a better way!
