English from Stanley Kubrick’s Films

Name: H.U


Event Date: December 11, 2019

Time: 13:00-13:30


Write a summary of your Event (100 words or more)

I am going to feature some quotes from popular Stanley Kubrick’s films to learn English. I also hope students to be inspired by some of the quotes from the films. Some quotes are poetic and implicit. Others are simple and explicit. First, I will explain the quotes grammatically to help students understand literally. After that, I will also share my understanding of the quotes without the context of them. Letting students know that even if they do not know the stories, they can always guess and get some ideas what those films would be like from the good quotes. I’d like to introduce Stanley Kubrick’s films along with the explanation of the quotes.
