Hello Cafetalk Community!
New Lesson! "Movie Mania!... Who Said It?"
Welcome and thank you for your interest in this unique and fun lesson! This is a text-based quiz that includes "85 Questions" about movie quotes from classic Hollywood films. For example, have you seen the films "Star Wars," "Casablanca," "Gone with the Wind," "The Godfather," "The Wizard of Oz," "Taxi Driver,"and other all-time favorite American movies? In that case, you'll probably do an excellent job on the quiz!
[*I have been a professional, working actress in Hollywood for a long time. If you're so inclined, please take a look at my YouTube Channel to see my acting work on American TV Shows and films:]
Since I have been a professional actress in Hollywood and acquired over 50 credits on IMDb (Internet Movie Database), I am extremely familiar with countless American movies. [This is my IMDb webpage:] https://www.imdb.com/name/nm0861069/?ref_=nv_sr_1
In addition, I graduated from UCLA (University of California, Los Angeles) with a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA) degree in Theatre Arts, so I also know the history of the entertainment business well.
More recently, I got a Master's degree in "Library and Information Science" from the San Jose State University. After graduating, I worked at the Santa Monica Main Public Library for 8 years, so I am familiar with all types of literature. Since most movies are originally based on books, I have read the book and watched the movie based on the same book in "Film and Literature" class at UCLA.
Adorned with colorful photographic visual aids, I will provide a worksheet with 85 multiple-choice questions about a variety of famous quotes from well-known movies. All you have to do is guess which movie the quote is from, or fill-in-the-blank to complete the line from the movie. Doesn't that sound like fun?
"I'm not afraid. I can be brave like you. But I know I shall be homesick for you, even in ______________." (Little Women)
a.) life b.) heaven c.) space
[Elizabeth Taylor, June Allison, Margaret O'Brien, and Janet Leigh in "Little Women"]
[It's okay if you don't know the movies or the quotes!]
If you don't know the movie quotes already, that's okay too! Don't you think it's a fun way to learn the quotes using your English comprehension and sense-making skills? During the lesson, I will give you hints in English along the way so you can work on your speaking skills too! Why not challenge yourself to this intriguing quiz to improve your English?
The muse for this lesson evolved from my love for movies! Please give this lesson a try, especially if you like Hollywood movies too! To see further information about my personal and professional background, as well as a list of other lessons that I offer, please take a look at my profile page.
PS: The answer to the multiple-choice question above is --> b.) heaven
Thank you for your interest in this lesson. I look forward to meeting you soon!

I took the movie class today and we proceeded the lesson based on a set of thoroughly prepared documents which she kindly sent me before the lesson. I think this approach to the class really shows her passion as a teacher and consideration for students. No wonder that she recorded more than 3000 lessons in such a short time.
Also, as I am a passionate movie lover myself, this class turned out to be great fun talking with her about the famous lines used in many excellent Hollywood movies
I want to continue this class with her help and enjoy the conversation together! Thank you very much, teacher!
