Abstract or Summary

Brief article (non-peer reviewed; professional magazine) on language teaching using film. What is it that engages the attention of young people? Game of Thrones stands out for its obsessive and ever growing fan base, while YouTube has become the second most-visited website in the world (after Google) with viewers watching more than 1 billion hours of content each day. These are global phenomena based on the universal appeal of narrative, and visual and aural stimulation. How can we bring this impact to the language classroom? And above and beyond learner engagement, what are the arguments for doing so?
