Being bilingual (English and French), I will offer material in both languages. Being both a secondary school and college teacher, I will offer material created for these age groups. Being a language lover, I will offer material created to optimize language learning and make the experience enjoyable for all. Being a teacher, I will offer material that is easy to use in a classroom and challenging for the students.

*** answer key included

This is a listening comprehension for the 6th episode of the first season of the Netflix series Stranger Things.

The document is already formatted, so you only have to print the needed pages and makes copies.

As always, the answer key is included.

Finally, I have also included a creative writing journal for the students to complete either at school or at home.

I have created listening comprehensions for other episodes of the series. The difficulty level of the listening comprehensions progresses as the series advances. It is therefore perfect to assess the progression of a student’s learning.

Notes from my past experiences and my applied linguistics studies if this evaluation is intended for ESL/EFL learners:

  • Linguistics and language acquisition studies show that active listening, such as completing a listening comprehension evaluation, benefits ESL learners much more than passive listening. It gives their listening a purpose and focuses students on trying to figure out the words and meaning.
  • According to language learning studies, the use of authentic material (meant for first language) provides more benefits than adapted material.
  • If possible, do not use subtitles when presenting a TV show or movie. My experience has shown me that students focus too much on reading the subtitles instead of trying to listen for understanding. Students may feel overwhelmed the first time but they will gain in confidence over time.
