It is interesting to use a movie in English classes. Although watching a movie in a classroom must have been extremely difficult for various reasons until early 1980s, the appearance of video cassettes made it possible to utilize a film in English courses rather easily. Later introduction of a closed caption decoder enabled us to show a movie to students with English speeches on a screen, rendering the use of video still more attractive. There were disadvantages, however, in the employment of a video cassette compared with the newer device of laser discs: for example, it often takes more than a few minutes to rewind a video cassette to get to a necessary part of a film whereas such an operation is far less tirneconsuming in the case of laser discs. Still more innovative is a digital video disc (DVD), which, among other advantages, is free from a problem laser discs have that making a pause erases lines on a screen. The present article attempts to advocate English classes capitalizing on DVDs in consideration of their convenience.
