This book brings together some inspiring international specialists with new ideas on how film and media can be integrated into foreign language classes. They argue rightly that language now lives in a world of screens, and show how language learning can meet the needs of learners in this new world.

* Michael Kelly, Professor Emeritus, University of Southampton, UK *

In contrast to studies which focus on role plays and drama in the foreign language classroom, this book advances research relevant to audio-visual literacy, especially film, a growing pedagogical tool within the edutainment field. Not only is Herrero and Vanderschelden's book an excellent boost to multiliteracy, multimodality, and the moving image, it contains a refreshing discussion on latest developments within film, multilingualism, cultural and intercultural studies.
