Students at Cadi Ayyad University in Morocco participated in the inaugural installment of the American Corner’s Cinema Club. The group celebrated with a screening of Jurassic World, followed by a discussion of the film’s themes, questions, and personal interpretations of the film. Participants practiced the receptive skills of listening and reading while watching the movie and reading the subtitles. The students also had a chance to practice their critical thinking and opinion-sharing skills during the post-movie discussion.

The American Corner’s Cinema Club, created by English Language Fellow Wyatt Boykin, provides students with a relaxed environment where they can interact with each other and practice the English skills they have developed. The club is also a great way to increase on-campus awareness of the American Corner at Cadi Ayyad University.
