Talk French: "Au coeur de la loi"
These DVD-ROMs run on computers
equipped with a DVD-ROM drive and cannot be played on a domestic DVD player.
The Movie Talk series is aimed at advanced language learners and is based
on authentic movies of between 50 minutes and 112 minutes in length - the complete
movie being stored on the DVD. The complete series consists of:
- English: "The
sins of the fathers"
- French: "Au
coeur de la loi"
- German: "Ein
Fall für Zwei"
"Mio padre è innocente"
Each DVD is divided
into six sections:
- Video &
Script: The whole movie can be viewed in full-screen mode without subtitles
or in small-screen mode with subtitles and an optional rolling script. If
the learner wishes to view a particular scene and play it over and over again,
it can be selected from a menu.
- Movie Quiz:
The learner takes part in a TV-style quiz on the movie, pitting his/her wits
against a "virtual" competitor - a character who has already appeared
in the World Talk series.
- Record Yourself:
The learner can choose a character in a short clip from the movie and record
his/her own voice, which is then substituted for the character's voice. Re-record
the clip giving yourself the best lines.
The learner can look up a word, which is then spoken aloud and illustrated
with a still picture from the movie.
- Word Search:
The learner can look for an example of a word in use. A short clip containing
the word will then play.
These consist of a four types of interactive exercises:
The learner attempts to match a spoken word with a still picture
Word: A gap-filling/multiple-choice drag-and-drop exercise in which
the learner attempts to match a blanked-out word in the movie subtitle
with a selection of possible words that appear below the subtitle.
An activity which is similar to Missing Word, except that the learner
has to drag the word letter-by-letter into the gap in the subtitle.
the next line? A multiple-choice exercise in which a short clip from
the movie is played and the learner has to anticipate the next line.
In addition, it
is possible for the learner to select his/her support language, e.g. a Spanish
MT speaker learning French could select Spanish as the support language. Individual
learners' names are stored, with a record of their score, the date on which
they last used the DVD, and the total number of sessions in which they have
