English films integrate locales, voices, images, plots, and characters. Some have text captions. They are normally regarded as a carrier of public entertainment. But in web-based and resource-driven English learning setting, the role of English films is not just to entertain the public, but to activate the background knowledge stored in the learners’ brains with their Visual-spatial Intelligence and deepen their understanding of the language and its culture through remembrance, association and reconstruction. The outcome is to transform the linguistic and cultural input into an effective learning output.
