The internet movie script database


MEC Product Trainer, Sarah Milligan, writes:


Using a film during lesson time is a brilliant way of motivating your learners and exposing them to authentic English. It livens up a class and always sparks debate.

Try this website The Internet Movie Script Database (IMSDb). It has a wealth of film scripts which you could easily use in class.

Use the scripts to make gap fills, text reconstruction activities or even get your learners to act out part of a scene.

Here are some MEC resources you could use as part of your movie lesson plan:


  • The Sony Ericsson Empire Film Awards – Language Exercise (Level 6)
  • Film trailers – Pronunciation Activity (Level 6)
  • Horror films – Language Exercise (Level 6)
  • The making of Titanic – Listening Activity (Level 5)
