"I really enjoyed attending the ALL film screenings. It has helped with my reading and listening skills and I was able to meet new people from different cultural backgrounds." Quote from participant

This project organised free film screenings in English with English subtitles for adult migrants, International Protected applicants (IPAs) and learners with intellectual disabilities. 270 people attended eight screenings in St. John’s Centre, Listowel between September and December 2023. 

Each film exposed audiences to English language phrases and expressions. Watching films in English with English subtitles allowed learners to improve their speaking, listening, reading, comprehension, and pronunciation skills.

Screenings helped adults build new connections in their communities. Participants socialised with people with similar needs and experiences. This project proved that watching films can be very beneficial when learning English.
