Several research reports in the UK, since 2008, found that the use of film in literacy classrooms resulted in measurable improvements in writing (including more sophisticated vocabulary and more complex sentences), reading, critical and creative thinking skills as well as a host of other personal and interpersonal benefits (Marsh and Bearne, 2008, Brooks, Cooper and Penkem 2012). A European literature review completed in 2009, found similarly profound results in studies done throughout Europe over the last 30 years, regardless of the language of instruction (Bazalgette, 2009).
