  2.  Pictures: What types of films are there?

3.A work with the new words:

  1.  Well, let’s say
  •  a funny film is a comedy
  •  a comedy can be romantic

There are two texts in your books connected with films. The class is divided into two groups. Each group has one text. Say what type of film is you text about.

The task for each group:

  •  to read the text in turn
  •  to retell it.
  •  to answer the questions after the texts.


Hi, Emma,

How are you? Have you seen Troy yet? I saw it last night at the cinema because it was my birthday.

Troy is a historical film, of course. And you know that’s my favourite kind of film! The story is about the Trojan War. At the start of the film Paris falls in love with Helen. The problem is that she’s the wife of Menelaus, the King of Sparta. Paris takes Helen to Troy. Menelaus is very angry, so he and his brother decide to invade Troy. It’s a great story, and I’d really like to read Homer’s poem The Iliad now.

There are a lot of fantastic actors in the film. Brad Pitt is Achilles and Orlando Bloom is Paris. Orlando Bloom was in Lord of the Rings as well. Do you remember? He was really good.

There are a lot of great moments in the film, but the best part when Hector and Achilles fight. I won’t tell you what happens!

I’ll speak to you soon.



  1.  What kind of film did Lisa see?
  2.  Who first wrote about the Trojan War?
  3.  Who was Menelaus?
  4.  Why was Menelaus angry?
  5.  Which actors does Lisa mention?
  6.  What’s Lisa’s favourite part of the film?
