  1. Concept of Film
  1. Definition of Film

With  the  increasing  access  to  TV,  video  equipment  and  more  recently,  computers,  teachers  have  found  more  opportunities  to  use  audio-visual  materials  at  all  levels  of  foreign language teaching, and they  have  frequently  used  them effectively  in  language classes

A film is a fascinating form of entertainment, because everything on the screen appears to be life-like and natural. The movie characters walk and talk just as people actually do. The rooms, houses, and street look real. The picture does not stand still at one scene, it moves forward together.

According  to  Champoux  (1999),  movies  are  a  comfortable  familiar  medium  to contemporary  students  that  can  keep  student’s  interest  in  the  theories  and  concepts  under discussion. Although  most  movies  are  fiction, they can offer powerful experiences that students are  unlikely  to  have  in  a  classroom.  Film  scenes  can  offer  visual  portrayal  of  abstract  theories and  concepts  taught  in  management  and  social  sciences  courses
