Richard Gresswell Created by Richard Gresswell

Web2English is a community of ESOL teachers and learners who are making and sharing short films. It is an experimental space where films and resources can be shared, and in doing so further develop the use of film media in language / literacy education and wider community language projects.

The collaborative making and sharing of short films is an enjoyable and creative way of telling stories. It is an accessible means of participation in education, that goes beyond the limitations of print media of whiteboards, books and worksheets. It presents a wide range of opportunities not only in language

Web2English is a community of ESOL teachers and learners who are making and sharing short films. It is an experimental space where films and resources can be shared, and in doing so further develop the use of film media in language / literacy education and wider community language projects.

The collaborative making and sharing of short films is an enjoyable and creative way of telling stories. It is an accessible means of participation in education, that goes beyond the limitations of print media of whiteboards, books and worksheets. It presents a wide range of opportunities not only in language and literacy education, but also as a powerful means of building relations within and between communities where issues of language and literacy intersect.

Clearly the making and sharing of short films intersects a wide range of social, cultural and historical issues. To this end, Web2English is a place to share films that highlight the many concerns and issues that surround us, not only directly relevant to language and literacy, but to the lives of the people that are the making of the films.
