Movie Reviewing - A Prospective Incidental Learning Approach in English Language Acquisition

Senguttuvan M, Prajeesh Tomy, Anu Baisel, Vijayakumar M


In applied linguistics, the practice of incidental learning i.e., learning without conscious purpose of committing the learning instructions to memory, is broadly recommended for effective Second Language Acquisition (SLA). Besides, the advent and applications of new technologies provide immense opportunities to promote and endorse incidental learning in L2 classrooms. In recent interdisciplinary respects, the integration of media studies in tertiary level English language learning curricula is reckoned to be a sensible interdisciplinary approach with potential outcomes. And, observing the long-term consumption of media, it is also quite perceptible that Indian consumerism to cinema and its offshoots is naturally on the rise. With this understanding, this research article explores the areas for English language skills development taking into account of the perks of incidental learning particularly through learners’ regular experience with movie reviews.
